Bulgur or burghul is cracked wheat wheat that has been hulled and par-boiled, to produce a less pronounced flavour and a lighter texture. Here it combined with diced tomatoes, cucumbers, spring onions with lots of parsley and mint. Tossed together with olive oil and lemon juice it is a fresh and light Middle Eastern salad. Chill before serving for the best flavour.
