This easy Honey Walnut Power Salad is packed with protein and will leave you ready to take on any day!
2 tablespoons butter
½ large yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 cups seedless red grapes, washed and cut in half
2 cups edamame (I did a quick steam-in-the-bag variety)
1 cup uncooked bulgur or other grain
¾ cup walnuts
¼ cup honey
¼ cup water
fresh baby spinach
crumbled blue cheese
salt to taste
- Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add onions and saute on low for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft, golden brown, and almost sweet tasting.
- While onions are still cooking, pour bulgur and 2 cups water into a saucepan; bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes, until most of the moisture has absorbed and the grains are soft enough to eat. Let cool for 15 minutes.
- When onions are done, stir into the bulgur so the butter is absorbed by the grains. Season with salt.
- Combine grapes and edamame in a large mixing bowl. Add cooled bulgur and walnuts. Whisk water and honey; pour over mixture and stir well. Add fresh baby spinach and crumbled blue cheese just before serving.
