1Add hot water to wheat, let stand 30 mins. Drain ALL water from wheat, squeeze if necessary. Blend remaining ingredients well. Add dressing, let stand at least 30 mins. in fridge.
2DRESSING: Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper,pour over salad while blending. Flavor options that have gone over well is adding a T of Cilantro and/or a t of ground Ginger to the dressing mix. I like to play ;)
3Quarter the Pita bread and fill with the salad. Can also be served as a stand alone salad, but I highly recommend the Pita option.
4Oh, one further adaptation you can try is to dice beef or lamb and add that to the mix. This a very versatile recipe :) If you do go with the meat option, season lightly, the balance in the salad is great already.
