I made this perfect summer salad for a BBQ in the park with my girlfriends. The combination of bulgur, green asparagus and nectarines, topped with some pomegranate seeds and a honey & lime dressing, isn’t just simply delicious, it also looks very beautiful with this combination of color. I took the salad with me in a big glass jar, which really helped to get all the attention on the salad buffet.
