This recipe comes from "Everyday Cooking with Dr. Dean Ornish"
I have tried it and it is quite good.
1 cup bulgur
1/2 cup diced, seeded, peeled cucumber
salt to taste, plus 1/2 tsp
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup diced fresh tomato
1 cup chopped parsley
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint(I have not used it with mint)
Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add bulgur, cover,
remove from heat, and let stand 25 minutes.
Sprinkle cucumber with 1/2 tsp salt. Place in a sieve set over a bowl
and drain 20 mins. Press lightly on the cucumber to release moisture.
In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, garlic, an salt and pepper
to taste. Transfer bulgur to a large bowl, add lemon juice mixture, and
fluff with a fork to blend. Stir in tomatoes, cucumbers,parsley and
mint. Taste and adjust seasoning.
