1 cup bulgur wheat (fine-medium grind)
2 cups hot water
2 cups of seeded and finely chopped ripe tomatoes
1 cup of finely chopped fresh green onions

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

In a large bowl pour in the hot water and add the bulgur. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand for about 35 minutes to rehydrate. Drain in a strainer and press with the back of a spoon to squeeze out as much water as possible.
In a salad bowl, combine the tomatoes, onions, cucumber, parsley, and mint. Toss the salad well to incorporate the ingredients. Season the salad with salt, pepper and cumin. Add the moisten bulgur; the lemon juice and olive oil. Mix everything together to incorporate the ingredients. Let your salad stand for at least one hour during of the bulgur will absorb the juices and flavours of the other ingredients. Serve with some humus and grilled pita bread. Enjoy!
