Bulgur Wheat Salad

Recipe from Three Sisters Around the Greek Table

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup bulgur wheat
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 5 scallions, white and pale green parts, chopped
  • ¼ cup each of fresh parsley, mint and oregano, minced
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • For the Dressing
  • 5 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ tsp salt

Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium pot over high heat. Add the
bulgur wheat and salt. Remove from heat and set aside, covered, for 1
hour, or until all of the water has been absorbed.

Fluff the cooked bulgur wheat with a fork and transfer to a medium-sized
bowl. Add the tomatoes, scallions, herbs and pepper and mix.

Add the dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk. Drizzle over the
bulgur wheat salad and mix thoroughly. Serve right away or let the salad
sit and marinate for a couple of hours before serving.
