Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1/2 cup Dry bulgur wheat
1 cup Boiling water
1/3 cup Lemon juice; freshly squeezed
6 tablespoons Spearmint; minced
1 teaspoon Salt; or to taste
1 teaspoon Black Pepper; freshly ground
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup Parsley; (up to 2 cups), finely minced
3/4 cup Scallion; chopped
3 large Tomatoes; finely diced
2 cloves Garlic; minced
1 head Red leaf lettuce

Original recipe makes 6

Preparation

Put the bulgur in a large bowl and pour the boiling water over it. Let soak at room temperature for at least 1 hour.

When the grain has absorbed all the water, mix the lemon juice, mint, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl and slowly stir in with a large spoon until all the grains are coated. Stir in all remaining ingredients (except the lettuce) until they are thoroughly distributed throughout the grain. The hardest part about making Tabbouleh Salad is waiting for all of the tempting ingredients to set as the grain absorbs all of the liquid. Cover and regrigerate at least 3 hours before serving, or overnight if you are preparing a day in advance. Fluff up with a fork and serve on a bed of red leaf lettuce. Serve as a side dish along with chicken fish, such as Lemon Grillet Halibut, or simply scoop with some warm pita bread.

Yikes, 1/3 cup of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of salt for 1/2 cup of bulgur? Is there a typo? This turned out worse tasting than sandy sea water...
