Directions

Place the bulgur into a large heat-proof bowl. Pour the boiling water over it, stir and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let it sit for about 15 minutes, until the water is absorbed and the bulgur is tender. Drain any excess water from the bulgur. Stir in the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, parsley, and mint. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, lemon juice, zest, cumin, salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the bulgur mixture and toss well to combine. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour or more. Serve chilled.

    I made this for a party and everyone loved it. Even vegetable haters liked it. It's so fresh and light. I wish Ellie was still coming up with new shows!

    Love this recipe! I used quinoa instead of bulgar wheat and increased water to 2 Cups. Left out mint & cumin cause i don't like them. Love how fresh it tastes compared to what i usually buy 'homemade' at a local family-run mediteranean store. My family loves it with some grilled pita bread!

    I loved this recipe and so did my Mom. She is 87 years young and still walks 2 miles a day. She is always looking for new recipes that are good for her health. Keep up the good work, Ellie. Please keep giving us good advice and recipes!
