Ingredients

  • 6 Bigelow Mint Medley Herbal Tea Bags
  • ¾ cups Bulgur Wheat (Tabouleh)
  • 1 ¼ cups boiling water
  • 1 large tomato, split and cut into ¼ inch dice
  • ½ cucumber, peeled, and cut into ¼ inch dice
  • ¾ - 1 cup crumbled feta cheese, about 4 ounces
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions
  • ¼ cup chopped pitted Greek olives
  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • Plenty of freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Pour the Bulgur wheat into a bowl. In a glass measuring cup, pour one cup of boiling water over the tea bags and steep for 4-5 minutes. Remove the tea bags to a small strainer and using the back of the spoon, press as much liquid as possible back into the cup. If needed, add additional boiling water to measure 1 cup, then pour it over the Buglur wheat. Let it stand until all the liquid evaporates, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Put the finished tabouleh (Bulgur wheat) in a salad bowl. Add the tomato, cucumber, feta cheese, scallions, mint and olives, turning to mix well. Pour in the olive oil; add salt and pepper and toss again. Taste to adjust the seasonings, if necessary. Serve over a bed of lettuce leaves.
