I came up with this salad because I had some cucumber to use up, and really liked the results. It's similar to Tabbouleh, but with a more Italian flavor. All amounts can be adjusted to suit your taste.
Pour water into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Add salt and bring to a boil over high heat. When water boils, add bulgur and remove from heat. Cover and let stand 30 minutes, or until all the water has been absorbed.
In a large bowl, combine bulgur with all remaining ingredients and stir to mix thoroughly.
This can be served at room temperature or chilled. Top with fresh parmesan or crumbled feta, if desired.
