This is my Mom's recipe that she gave me when I moved from home (oh, those many moons ago) and I love it. She didn't make it very often so it was a real treat for me when she did. I'll eat it in the summer by itself or with some homemade pita for a wonderful lunch. Nothing I've ever bought; mix or pre-made, can compare. Thanks, Mom!

This recipe seems like it would be awesome on its own, but since i coudlnt get the fresh mint or bulgar wheat, I decided to do a little improv and substituted brown rice for the bulgar wheat. Turned out pretty good. I think the texture of the brown rice works well with this recipe. Try it out!
