A nice change from the usual bulgur salad (tabbouleh). I used coarse whole wheat bulgur, used soy milk soured with a bit of lemon juice instead of buttermilk, and used ultra low fat mayonnaise. I enjoyed it and will be keeping the recipe on file. This would be a good salad for picnics and potlucks.

This salad was a nice change. We did feel however that the oregano was too much, maybe we will try using fresh dill in place of the oregano next time.
