Par-cooked, dried, cracked wheat, known as bulgur, has a lot going for it. It’s whole-grain healthy, hearty, and filling without being heavy, and — arguably its very best selling point in high summer — it requires no heat at all to prepare. OK, for the salad with peaches and arugula (above) you should really toast the almonds, but that only takes a few minutes. Add fruits and vegetables, and cured meat, if you like, and it becomes the center of a satisfying, and cool, seasonal meal.
Don’t turn on that stove. Easy bulgur salads are perfect for the summer table.
