 Tabouli (Bulgur Wheat Salad)
 Put 1 cup of whole wheat bulgur and 1 large chopped onion in a medium Pyrex
 bowl and cover with boiling water...let these soak 2 hours (if you like the 
 bite of raw onion, you can add the onion later...I like it better slightly 
 cooked by the water).  Drain well and add 1 lb of fresh chopped tomatoes or
 one 16 oz can of diced tomatoes, 1/3 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed tastes
 much better than from concentrate), 1/4 tsp or more freshly ground black
 pepper, and salt to taste.  Let it stand for several hours or overnight in the
 refrigerator to mix the flavors.  Pritikin also suggested adding fresh mint
 leaves, chopped, but I've never had any to try!  This is great in ww pita
