  • 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

  • 1/4 cup oil ("I use a cold-pressed, blended oil")

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.
