From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This is a fairly typical salad Middle Eastern style. Serve with flat bread, pita bread rounds, or even Mexican tortillas. I like to pile it onto crisp Romaine leaves, and for a crowd of people I will break up the lettuce and toss it in and serve as a great green salad.
1/2 cup dark bourghol (aka burghul, crushed wheat)
Put the bourghol in a bowl and cover with cold water. Let soak about 10-15 minutes. Drain well. (It is not totally necessary to soak the wheat, some cooks do not as they prefer the crispness of the wheat. ) Combine the wheat, tomatoes, onion, parsley, zest and lemon juice and salt in a beautiful salad bowl. Stir in the oil and mint, and serve with romaine leaves and flat breads.
