A Middle-Eastern salad which could also be served at a party as an appetizer.
1 cup boiling water
1 cup bulgur
2 to 3 tomatoes, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
1 to 2 celery stalks, diced
4 to 5 radishes, diced
1/4 cup snipped parsley
1/2 cup snipped mint leaves
1/2 cup fresh lemon or lime juice, or a combination
1/4 cup oil ("I use a cold-pressed, blended oil")
1/3 cup chopped onion or scallion
1 to 2 teaspoons (sea) salt, or to taste
Pour boiling water over bulgur and let set 1 hour. Drain off any unabsorbed water. Combine other ingredients with bulgur. Toss gently and chill. Serve on a bed of lettuce, garnished with tomato wedges and additional parsley.
