    kiwidutch's Note:

    Another adapted recipes from one of my favourite cookbooks: Step-by-step cookery series " Salads and Summer dishes". This is a healthy salad that contains burgul (cracked wheat) which is a whole wheat grain that has been boiled, baked then cracked. You don't need to cook it, just soak in cold water for half an hour until the grains swell. I like this cucumber and tomato free version that is traditional to Lebanon. If you can get continental parsley, (it looks like fronds), rather than curly leaved English parsley then the favour will be more authentic. ZWT REGION: Middle East.

    1. 1
      Cover burgul/ cracked wheat with cold water in a bowl, there should be about 2.5cm (1 inch) water above the wheat. Soak for 30 minutes, use a sieve to drain it well and spread it out on a clean tea towel to dry off it bit.
    2. 2
      Using a blender or food processor finely pulse parsley and mint.
    3. 3
      Mix the cracked wheat, mint, parsley, spring onions, olive oil, lemon rind and juice together and season with salt and pepper to taste.
    4. 4
      Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh mint sprigs.
