Day 43


This traditional salad from the Middle East is one of our staples during the summer. Since it's a sunny day outside I thought I would finish my Lent recipes with this recipe.


200g bulgar wheat

350ml boiling water

450g tomatoes (chopped)

1/2 cucumber (diced)

3-4 spring onions

For the dressing

3 tbsps olive oil

3 tbsps lemon juice

2 tbsps fresh mint

4 tbsps fresh parsley

1 clove garlic (crushed)


1. Put the bulgar wheat in a large bowl and pour on the boiling water. Leave for 15-20 minutes.

2. Mix together the ingredients for the dressing and pour over the soaked bulgar wheat. Fold in lightly with a spoon.

3. Leave to marinade for 2 hours.

4. Add the spring onions, tomatoes and cucumber and serve.
