Sasun jan, very easy to make, but it takes too much time...

here is the recipe from a cookbook that I did for friends a while back.

1/2 cups fine bulghour
3 lge. bunch parsley, minced fine
1 bunch scallions, minced fine
3 tomatoes, skinned and peeled, if desired chopped fine
1 small bunch mint
1/2 tsp. ground red pepper
1/3 cup olive oil (pure or substitute)
1/3 cup lemon juice salt to taste

Soak bulghour in the diced tomato for an hour. Squeeze out the water with hands and mix with other ingredients except oil, lemon juice and salt.

Mix with olive oil, lemon juice and salt, using proportions agreeable to your taste.

It is important that vegetables be minced very fine. Serve in a bowl or dish surrounded with Romaine leaves or fresh tender grape leaves. The leaves are used to scoop up the salad. Prepare the mixture early enough so flavors blend.

Cool Azat jan biggrin.gif This will be the most important accomplishment of my next week. One more stupid question - what is the American name of bulghour?

Thanks buddy wink.gif

Sasun j, you can pretty much improvise what you like as long as you keep the main ingredients there as a structure. The wheat,oil,lemon juice and most important the parsley but after this you can add the veggies you like
You can also grill seafood like shrimp, swordfish or tuna and place it on top then you got a complete meal.
I personally like grilled squid with tentacles mixed in the salad. Have fun.

Armat jan, now tell me, are you a painter or a cook? laugh.gif

I think it is safer for me to go from a simple receipe, or else it will become a shilashpot (I think there is a dish called like that).
OK, I will report the results of my tabuleh...
