- 1 red capsicum, diced
- 2 tbspn fresh mint, chopped roughly

Pour the bulgar wheat into a mixing bowl and add the water and oil. Mix through and set aside for half an hour so the wheat can begin to absorb the liquid and begin to soften.

Just before serving, add the chopped parsley and mint and mix through. Taste and season as necessary.
- This salad just gets better and better as it absorbs the different flavours - there are many salads that are better the day after!
- Yes, you can find recipes for tabouleh with all sorts of wild ingredients but sticking with the essentials will give you the real-deal tabouleh
