In a large bowl, pour the boiling water over the bulgur. Cover tightly and set aside 20 - 30 minutes. In separate bowl, stir together 1/3-cup lemon juice, garlic, parsley, scallions, tomatoes and chickpeas. When the bulgur has absorbed all the water, stir it with a fork to fluff the grains. Toss the lemon-vegetable mixture with the bulgur and add salt & pepper & mint to taste.
Description: The assertive and clear flavors of garlic, lemon, parsley and mint carry this traditional Middle Eastern Salad without any added oil.
