BBQ turkey and bulgar wheat salad

Yesterday saw the opening of BBQ season in our house. YAY! And with this weather who wants to cook for hours? So, while one person bbq-ed the turkey, the other one made the salad.
I’ve never eaten, let alone cooked, bulgur wheat. It looks far too healthy for me. But, we got a gift of some a while back so it was as good a time as any to try it.

For about 3 people you’ll need:
400g turkey filets
75g bulgur wheat
“surprise du frigo” salad – whatever’s in the fridge
The juice of a lemon
100g fromage frais
Harissa paste

BBQ or grill the turkey. This should take about 15 minutes.
While that’s happening, cook the bulgur wheat. Tip it and about a cup of water into a saucepan. Bring it to the boil and once it hits boiling point, turn the heat down low and cover with a lid. Cook it like this for about 15 minutes.
For the salad, check out your fridge for red onions, spring onions, tomatoes, cucumber – anything salady. Chop it into manageable pieces and put in a bowl.
For the dressing, mix the fromage frais, crushed garlic, a little harissa and the chopped chives.
Once the wheat is cooked, add it to the salad. Chop up the cooked turkey and add that too, together with the lemon juice. Season to your tastes.
Serve with the harissa dressing and some chilled wine or beer.
