Author Notes

This salad represent a New Year blessing for as many good wishes for the up coming year as the number of the seeds in a pomegranate. You should have pretty good year after eating this salad since it is not only very tasty, sweet and sour, but also pretty healthy. Not your usual appetizer salad. —Cordeliah

This sounds tasty, but I think you mean "bulgur" (a type of wheat) rather than "burglar."
