    1. Place burghul in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Stir and cover with plastic wrap and stand for 20 minutes.

    3. Meanwhile, whisk together the vinegar, orange juice, oil, spices and garlic with pepper. Drain burghul and press out the excess water with a spoon. Place burghul in a large bowl and mix in half the dressing. Cool in refrigerator.
    4. When cool, add green beans, corn, onion, capsicum and watercress to burghul. Toss through remaining dressing and serve.
