I was looking for something salad-y to do with bulgur other than tabbouleh, and this *so* hit the spot! I toasted some cumin seed and then crushed it rather than using ground cumin -- definitely the right move. And, realizing how much liquid bulgur can absorb, I went with more like 1/3 cup of both the lime and orange juice, which I think was a better option. All four of us who ate it (and there were left-overs for tomorrow) liked it a lot, so I'm certainly putting it in the rotation. Love those citrus notes!
