Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup medium bulgur, dry
  • 2 cups finely chopped ripe tomatoes (1 pound)
  • 3 cups finely chopped curly parsley
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mint
  • 1/2 cup minced white onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large scallion, thinly sliced

Put the bulgur in a large bowl, and stir in enough water to cover. When the wheat dust and chaff rise to the surface, pour off the water. Rinse the bulgur three or four more times, until the water is clear. Cover the bulgur with fresh water, and let it soak for 20 minutes.

Pour off the water, and then squeeze the bulgur dry. Transfer the bulgur to a large bowl and add the tomatoes.

Stir in the parsley, mint, onion, salt, pepper, and allspice, and then add the olive oil. Gradually add the lemon juice, tasting the Tabbouleh until it is balanced; it should be lemony but not unpleasantly tart.

Cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Garnish with the scallions. Serves 6.
