Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, toss the bulgur with 1 teaspoon of salt. Stir in the water, cover with plastic wrap and let stand until the water is absorbed and the bulgur is tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a large serving bowl, combine the red onion with the lemon juice, oregano, capers and garlic and let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in the olive oil and then add the cucumber and olives. Fluff the bulgur with a fork and add it to the dressing. Add the lettuce, season with salt and pepper and toss well. Top the bulgur salad with the crumbled feta and serve right away.

Suggested Pairing

A crisp, tangy Mediterranean white will blend with the earthy flavor of the bulgur. Try an Assyrtiko from Greece.
