Summer Salad: Bulgur, Okra, Tomato, Onion, Tofu, Basil


Leftover okra (from previous post) makes a great addition to a summer salad. I used bulgur because I was bored of pasta and rice but use whatever grain you want. The veggies, too, are up to you. Whatever is fresh and available will make a great salad. The fried tofu that is available on market days in our town added some grease and chew. Dressed with lemon juice and olive oil, the salad was light enough for the heat of Benin yet hearty enough for a meal.
