    This is a quick and fresh dish that is good all year round. I love to serve it with pita chips.


    • 2 cups cracked wheat (bulghur)
    • 2 cups very hot water
    • 1 cucumber, chopped
    • 3 small tomatoes, chopped
    • 1 bunch green onions, (8) sliced
    • 1/2 cup fresh chopped mint
    • 2 cups fresh chopped cilantro or parsley. ( I prefer cilantro)
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • **I like to use a food processor to chop up all of the fresh ingredients, it is a lot quicker then chopping by hand.**
    • Dressing:
    • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste


    1. *Soak the cracked wheat in the hot water until the water is absorbed, about 30 minutes.
    2. * Drain any excess water, if necessary, and squeeze dry.
    3. * Combine the salad ingredients, including wheat, in a medium bowl.
    4. * Mix the dressing ingredients together and stir into the salad mixture.
    5. *Serve chilled or at room temperature.

          I absolutely loved this and will make it again and again, unfortunately non of the family did, although my son said he would try it again if I didn't put so much garlic in. It kept really well in the fridge and went well with everything. The one thing I would say is the flavour develops the longer you have it so is probably best made the night before.

          The only amendment I made was to put sesame oil in rather than olive oil it was accidental but I'd use it again when I make it as I wouldn't want to change a thing I just love this

            This would be a nice one to try. I have no idea how it would taste like but find it interesting.
