Ingredients:

6 Bigelow Mint Medley Herb Tea Bags
3/4 cups Bulgur Wheat (Tabouleh)
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 large tomato, split and cut into 1/4 inch dice
1/2 cucumber, peeled, and cut into 1/4 inch dice
3/4 - 1 cup crumbled feta cheese, about 4 ounces
1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
1/4 cup chopped pitted Greek olives
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
Plenty of freshly ground black pepper

Yield: Serves 4

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.
