Tabbouleh is a wonderfully versatile dish that can be served as a fresh salad, side dish or appetizer served with hummus and pita bread or crackers.
   1 cup bulgur wheat
   ½ cup boiling water
   2 cups finely chopped parsley
   2 cups finely chopped mint
   Juice of 1 lemon
   ⅔ cup olive oil
   Sea salt & pepper to taste
   1 teaspoon cinnamon (or 1 peeled, finely chopped cucumber)
   Lettuce leaves, to serve and lemon wedges, to garnish
Place the bulgur wheat in a large mixing bowl and pour the boiling water over it. Cover tightly and let sit for 30-40 minutes, until the water is absorbed and the grains are light and fluffy. Mix in the remaining ingredients, except for the lettuce leaves and lemon wedges. Serve Tabbouleh on lettuce leaves with lemon wedges for garnish.
