Kind of Tabbouleh Salad
From: Chris French

  • 200g (7oz) Bulgar wheat
  • 330ml (12 fl oz) boiling water
  • 50 ml (2 fl oz) olive oil
  • 50 ml (2 fl oz) lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped/crushed
  • Handful parsley, handful coriander (cilantro), bit less mint all chopped up.
  • 450g (1Lb) Tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 Cucumber diced
Pour the boiling water over the bulgar wheat, leave it for about 20 minutes to absorb the water.
Mix oil, lemon juice and garlic together, pour over the bulgar wheat and leave overnight if possible.

Add the herbs, toms and cucumbers, mix together and eat.

You can vary the herbs to taste (some people don't like coriander, poor people), but don't stint.
I tend to make it up as I go along, but other than soaking the bulgar wheat the quantities are very flexible .
