Recipe by Naresh Aswani of Dubai, US

Ingredients vegetarian 4 servings

    • 1/3 cup Crushed wheat (bulgur)
    • 2 cup Water
    • 1/4 cup Fresh mint (chopped) or 2 tbs dry
    • 4 Green onions, with ends
    • 2 lg Tomatoes (diced small)
    • 1½ tsp Salt
    • 1/4 tsp Pepper
    • 1/3 cup Lemon juice (or to taste)
    • 1/4 cup Olive oil or vegetable oil


    1. Wash parsley well, drain and shake out excess moisture.
    2. Soak crushed wheat in water in a large mixing bowl for 2 minutes. Drain well. Set aside while preparing other ingredients.
    3. Remove stems from parsley and discard. Chop parsley very fine (3 bunches should equal about 5 cups). Add to wheat.
    4. Chop onions fine and add to mixture along with remaining ingredients.
    5. If not served immediately, do not add tomatoes and onions until just before serving. Toss well.
    6. Serve with Romaine lettuce leaves. Tear leaves into bite sized pieces and use to scoop up salad for eating.
    7. Note: For a salad that is not too wet, do not chop parsley in a food processor as it crushes the parsley.
