Bulgur Salad with Tuna and Tomatoes
I made this meal one later afternoon when my husband was driving in from out of town. I knew he’d be passing by tempting fast food restaurants.
Neither of us knew he had a favorite lunch, but I had him on the hook.
“Yes!” he said as he sat down, “this is my favorite lunch.”
