Perhaps the best known bulgur wheat dish is tabbouli, a Lebanese salad featuring bulgur, parsley and mint in a lemon dressing. Par-cooked and dried whole wheat, bulgur is a whole grain loaded with nutrients and fiber and a healthy alternative to pasta in dinner salads.
Although package directions often recommend boiling and stirring, a no-fuss way to prepare quick-cooking bulgur is to simply soak in boiling water.
It only takes a few minutes to assemble to salad but a longer time is specified for preparing, soaking, and chilling the bulgur.

When the bulgur is cool, move to a very large salad bowl. Add with the diced pickles, sliced or quartered grapes, crumbled feta, and arugula or other greens. Toss to mix.
Whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, and the olive oil. Add to other ingredients and toss to mix thoroughly.
