  • 2
    • In a large bowl, add mint, parsley, scallions, peas & tomatoes. • Squeeze handfuls of bulgur and drain water well. Add to bowl and mix. The mix should be more of the green to white, but 1 cup should be enough. • Add oil to coat but not soak. • Add lemon, salt & pepper as you go and keep tasting it until you get the lemony taste you desire. • It’s all individual and you can always add more. • Serve with lettuce leaves or pita bread. o (It’s polite to use either of these instead of a fork or spoon and so much more tasty)
