How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large saucepan of salted boiling water, cook the bulgur until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well, then spread out on a baking sheet to cool.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, working over a bowl to catch any juice, remove the seeds from the pomegranate. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, honey, garlic and cinnamon. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved pomegranate juice. Whisking constantly, drizzle in the olive oil until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

In a medium bowl, combine the bulgur, endive, 1 cup of parsley, 1/2 cup of mint, the preserved lemon, if using, and the pomegranate seeds. Add the dressing and toss to evenly coat. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the salad to a platter and top with the pistachios. Garnish with parsley and mint.

Chef's Notes

Preserved lemons, common in Moroccan cooking, have been soaked in brine for about a month, which makes their skins tender and delicious.
