  • Soak the burghul for at least ½ hour.
  • Drain and remove excess moisture with a paper towel or clean teatowel.
  • Mix all theingredients together except the burghul.
  • Add the the burghul slowly until the salad is lightly dotted with burghul.
  • You may find that when this effect is achieved you still have some burghul left - don't be afraid to bin it or give it to the birds!
  • Add a pinch of salt if required.
