Moushine) 1/2 lb fine bulgur (cracked wheat - also known as burghul) 1 small white onion - finely chopped 1 1/2 cups finely chopped parsley 3 Tbs finely chopped fresh mint (or 2 Tbs crushed dried mint) 2 firm tomatoes - chopped 1 cucumber - chopped (optional) 1 light green sweet pepper - chopped (optional) 4 Tbs olive oil Juice of 1 lemon (at least 4 Tbs) salt and pepper Nice additions: chopped green olives, 1 Tbs very-very finely chopped lemon peel (just thinly peel some of the lemon used for the juice) All the above quantities may be varied according to taste. Parsley should dominate. Preparation: ------------ 1. Soak bulgur in water for at least 1/2 an hour. It will expand. Drain and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Spread out to dry on a cloth. 2. Mix bulgur with onions. Add the rest of the vegetables, finishing with the parsley, mint, olive oil, lemon juice. Mix well. Add salt and pepper. Hagit Shatkay
