Yield: Serves 4-5.

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.
