- 1/2 pound bourghol (cracked wheat)
- 4 tomatoes, cubed
- 8 scallions (green onions), slices
- 6 sprigs parsley, chopped
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Lettuce leaves
Soak cracked wheat in hot water to cover for 2 hours. Drain thoroughly. Combine the tomatoes, scallions, parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl. Toss together lightly. Add the cracked wheat and again toss lightly. Arrange beds of lettuce leaves on individual plates. Sprinkle a few drops of olive oil on each portion. Divide the mixture into even portions. Serve cold. Note: In Lebanon, a little minced garlic is added to the above ingredients. The vegetables are chopped very finely on a chopping board, combined with the other ingredients, then chilled. The salad is served in a large bowl surrounded by individual scoops of crisp romaine lettuce leaves, and everyone helps him/herself.
