  1. 2 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  2. 1½ cups medium-grind bulgur wheat
  3. 6 cups (about ¼ pound) roughly chopped kale
  4. ¼ lb. thinly sliced salami, roughly chopped
  5. ¼ cup chopped parsley
  6. ¼ cup chopped pitted olives
  7. 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  8. 1 Tbsp. chopped garlic
  9. Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring broth to a boil in a large pot. Stir in bulgur then cover and simmer until just tender, about 10 minutes. Uncover, scatter kale over the top, cover and cook until wilted and tender, 4 to 5 minutes more. Set aside off of the heat, covered, for 5 minutes then uncover and fluff with a fork.
  2. Transfer bulgur and kale to a large bowl, add salami, parsley, olives, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper and toss gently to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature.
