Recipe by Marz
A middle eastern salad, that is so good! Especially if you like a lemon overload. From Quick and Simple.

What a perfect name for this dish!!! It definitely has a "POW" of lemon flavor going on! I had some trouble with the bulgur wheat softening up though, I ended up having to boil it for about 3 minutes then let it sit to continue absorbing the liquid. Great side dish or for a lite meal. Thank you Marz ... I selected this for the "Taste of Yellow" event - May 2009 :)
