Summer Harvest Salad

  • Summer Harvest Salad


which is firmly based in tabbouleh, but bears only a faint similarity in taste


  • 1c bulgur wheat
  • 1c boiling water
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • ½ red onion, minced
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 2c italian parsley, chopped
  • 1/2c fresh mint, sliced thin
  • 1/2c manzanilla olives, sliced (honestly, if you can *get* salt and lemon preserved olives, go with those, but you probably can’t, so spanish olives it is)
  • 1c lemon juice
  • 2/3c olive oil
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1tsp fennel, crushed

Cooking Instructions

Put the bulgur and the water in a bowl and leave them for an hour. If any water remains, drain it and squeeze the bulgur in a tight cheesecloth to get it as dry as possible.

Chop the herbs and veg and mix them in, until it’s all approximately evenly distributed. Briskly mix lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and fennel to make dressing. Put dressing and salad in the fridge overnight, and pour dressing over the top just before serving.
