Another version of a refreshing Middle Eastern salad, this can be made with just parsley, or just mint, but combined they enhance the cool, fresh flavours.

Serves 4



  1. Put the wheat in a bowl and completely cover with boiling
    water. Soak for 15 minutes, then drain, rinse under cold
    water, and roll the swollen wheat in a clean tea towel to
    remove excess water. It should be thoroughly dry.
  2. Peel and deseed the tomatoes and dice the flesh; put aside.
  3. Dice the spring on ions and cucumber, and finely chop the
    parsley – stalks and all – and mix with the lemon juice.
  4. Combine the bulgur wheat with the diced vegetables and
    parsley. Stir in the olive oil, adding the full amount only if
    you like an oily mi x.
  5. Add salt and pepper and scatter torn mint leaves through
    and over the salad.
  6. Cover and leave for 2- 3 hours before eating.
