Yeah, I hear you saying it already...what's tabbouleh?  It doesn't sound like something to eat for dinner...but it is!  It's a recipe I got from my grandma (a self taught gourmet cook) and it's very tasty.  It uses wheat bulgar, which is like cracked wheat.  Try it, you'll like it!


2 c wheat bulgar
2 c cold water
1 c chopped parsley (I actually used spinach, didn't have any parsley)
1 c finely chopped bell pepper, any color
1 c finely sliced scallions
1/2 c chopped mint leaves
1/2 c feta cheese crumbles (or the block stuff cut into small pieces), optional
1/2 c lemon juice
1/2 c olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

In a large bowl, combine bulgar and water, and let stand for 1 hour.  Add vegetables and cheese and stir to combine. Whisk together lemon juice and olive oil and salt.  Pour over salad and stir well to combine.   Let stand in refrigerator overnight.  Stir well again before serving.
