Grain Salad with Scallion Dressing

  • TOTAL TIME: 40 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

This vegetarian recipe combines hearty grains with crunchy nuts, creamy chickpeas and a roasted-scallion dressing.

  1. 2 large bunches of scallions (about 7 ounces)
  2. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  4. 1/2 cup bulgur wheat
  5. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  6. Kosher salt
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  8. 1/4 cup unsalted roasted almonds, chopped
  9. One 15-ounce can chickpeas—drained, rinsed and patted dry
  10. 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  11. 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. Chop all but 2 of the scallions. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the chopped scallions with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Roast for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the scallions are tender and lightly charred in spots.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan of boiling water, cook the quinoa and bulgur together until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain well and spread the grains on a baking sheet to cool.
  3. Transfer the scallions to a food processor. With the machine on, drizzle in the remaining 1/2 cup of olive oil. Add 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, bulgur, almonds, chickpeas, onion and parsley. Add the roasted-scallion dressing and the remaining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and toss well. Season with salt and pepper. Thinly slice the remaining 2 scallions, scatter on top and serve.
Make Ahead The dressing can be refrigerated overnight.
