Tabbouleh Salad - (Cracked Wheat Salad)

low fat, salads/dressings

3/4 cup bulgur (cracked wheat)
1 cup diced seeded tomatoes
1 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped scallions or green onions
1 teaspoon dill weed
4 black olives; sliced
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
lettuce leaves; for garnish

Put bulgur into a strainer and run cold water over it. Transfer it to a bowl, cover it with cold water to a depth of one inch above the top of the wheat. Let it stand 15 to 30 minutes. Drain the bulgur in a strainer lined with cheesecloth. Gather the cheesecloth and squeeze to extract most of the water. Put the bulgur into a serving bowl and add all of the remaining ingredients (except lettuce). Toss to blend thoroughly. Garnish the serving bowl with lettuce leaves. This recipe yields 8 servings. Comments: May also be cooked. Rather than soaking in water, heat the water and bulgur together for 15 minutes, then add the remaining ingredients.
