This refreshing salad has become well known and can be found in kebab shops, restaurants and even in the deli section of local supermarkets. It can be eaten on its own or as a side dish.
250g/1 cup brown burghul (bulgur) wheat
500 ml/2 cups hot water
2 small onions or 4 spring onions, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, finely diced
½ cup flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
¼ cup olive oil
1-2 lemons, juiced
teaspoon salt, or to taste,
pepper, to taste
Place bulgur in a large bowl and cover with hot water. Leave to stand for 1-2 hours (depends on grind of bulgur).
Drain and squeeze out as much liquid as possible with your hands, then spread out for a few minutes to dry further on a clean tea towel.
In a bowl combine the bulgur, onions, tomatoes, parsley, olive oil and lemon. Season to taste, adding more seasoning, lemon or oil as required. This salad should be distinctly lemony.
