Here's a lively and easy-to-make tabbouleh that's a go-to recipe for one of our busy Earthbound moms. It's delicious as a side dish or as a snack/appetizer on its own and makes a healthy and flavorful pack-along lunch, too!
In a large bowl, combine bulgur and enough hot water to cover. Let stand 20 minutes or until soft.
Scoop the bulgur into a sieve or fine mesh colander, and press with the back of a large spoon to squeeze out as much water as possible.
Dry the soaking bowl with a towel and return the bulgur to the bowl. Add the lemon juice and toss to distribute evenly. Salt to taste.
Add the rest of the ingredients and toss together, seasoning with salt and pepper as needed. Chill and serve with warm pita bread.
