  3. Chop the parsley and finely shred the mint leaves. Trim and finely chop the spring onions. Put all three into a salad bowl.
  4. Squeeze the lemon and put the juice aside, then rinse and dry the lettuce and warm the pita bread.
  5. Rinse the burghul in cold water, then squeeze dry in handfuls and add to the salad bowl with the lemon juice and oil. Season to taste and mix thoroughly.
  6. Flake the salmon, removing any bones, add to the salad and toss.
  7. Line a platter with the lettuce leaves and pile the tabbouleh on top. Garnish the salad with lemon wedges and the warm pita bread.
