Serves 6 - 8
Place bulgur wheat in a large bowl. Add boiling water, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Stir and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to stand at room temperature for about an hour. The bulgur will swell and soften but should not be mushy.
To the bulgur wheat mixture, add scallions, mint, parsley, tomatoes, cucumber, remaining salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined. Taste to check for seasonings.
Can be served immediately, or covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated until needed.
Make the Tabbouleh earlier in the day and let it sit, this will improve the flavor.
