1/2 cup bulgur (cracked wheat)

1 bunch flat leaf parsley, (stems removed), finely chopped

3-4 stems fresh mint (stems removed), finely chopped

10-12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half

1/2 seedless cucumber, cut into 1/4 inch pieces

2-3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVO)

Juice from medium sized lemon

Fresh ground pepper and salt


In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add the bulgur and turn off heat. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place bulgur in a large bowl and cool.

Once bulgur has cooled, add parsley, mint, tomato, cucumber, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste and mix well. Add more lemon juice and salt if necessary.

Preparation Tips:

Bulgur is a whole wheat grain that has been cracked and partially pre-cooked. As a whole grain, bulgur is a much better source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients than enriched or refined wheat. Bulgur is easy to find in most grocery stores; a good brand to look for is Bob's Red Mill.

Want to add a different flavor? Try adding green onion, ground almonds, pomegranate kernels or diced garlic.
