This is just one of many versions of a yummy, healthy mediterranean parsley and wheat salad. Its great mixed with hummus on a pita chip.

1 1/2 cups water
1 c bulgar wheat
1/3 c lemon juice
1/3 c olive oil
1 1/2 T salt

3 bunches parsley, with the leaves chopped fine. Discard stems
1 cucumber, seeded and diced
tomatoe, diced - optional

Boil water and pour 1 1/2 cups over the bulgar wheat in a big bowl. Add lemon juice, olive oil, and salt. Let it sit for 45 minutes to an hour till fluffy. Add in parsley, cucumber, and if desired, tomatoes. If the taste is not strong enough, you can add more lemon juice and olive oil, and season to taste. Great as a side for mediterranean chicken, or served with hummus on pita chips.
