It’s the weekend! Not just any weekend though, it’s the 4th of July weekend. If you are still looking for a quick, easy and tasty potluck salad you have come to the right place! This one is packed with nutrition and will leave you craving more.

There are so many components that make this salad good for you. Not only is it packed with health promoting veggies but it also contains wheat bulgur and chickpeas. Two ingredients that add tons of nutrition.

Despite all the controversy about a gluten-free diet, wheat bulgur is actually incredibly good for you! Wheat can have health benefits such as aiding weight control, assisting mental health, reducing chronic inflammation and it’s heart healthy. (source)

Chickpeas are another amazing food! They also aid digestion, help regulate blood sugar levels and they contain antioxidants! (source)

All in all this delicious salad is the perfect choice for a healthy 4th of July! Some other delicious and easy peasy options are our Last Minute Potato Salad, Picky Eater Tuna Salad, Orange Wheat Berry Fruit Salad and Healthy Spaghetti Garden Salad. Yum!

    I like the ingredients in this salad except for bulgur – I am allergic to wheat. I’ll try with brown rice. I have never added rice to a salad but it might work.

      We have actually added rice to salads quite a bit and it tastes amazing! Forbidden or pink rice work particularly well. Have a great day! 🙂
