1. Cook the bulgar. Boil water in kettle or pan. Place bulgar wheat in a mixing bowl and sprinkle with a little salt. Pour 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp boiling water overtop. Let sit for 20 min, give it a stir, then place in fridge to cool.

2. While the bulgar is cooking and cooling, prepare all the produce. It's all about personal preference, so adjust the amounts as you desire.

3. Once the bulgar is cold, add the produce and stir.

4. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. It should be bright and fresh. If it seems dry at all, add a little more oil and lemon juice. Adjust seasonings to taste.

5. Serve right away or let sit overnght for added flavor development.

6. Serve with pita and hummus or baba ganoush.
