TABBOULEH                                  Basic

1          cup fine burghul (Bulgar)
2          cups boiling water
        cup chopped onion
2          cup chopped parsley
1/4       cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1/4       cup olive oil
2          tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1      tsp. salt
        Tsp. fresh ground pepper
2          good medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/4       cup lemon juice mixed with tsp. salt
 
Lettuce leaves for garnish.

Cover burghul with water and let sit for 30 minutes. 

Drain well in a sieve and spread on a cloth to dry.  Mix the dried burghul with the onion and squeeze/mash it a little to release the onion flavor.  Add parsley and mint and mix well. 

Beat oil with lemon juice, stir in salt and pepper, then toss with burghul mixture.  Add tomatoes & chill for one hour.

Serve over lettuce leaves with lemon/salt mixture on the side. 

Serves 6 - 8
