  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 cup bulgur wheat
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cumin

  • ¾ cup seedless grapes, halved
  • ½ cup crumbled fat-free feta
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh mint
  • 3 Tbsp sliced scallions


  1. Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in the bulgur and then remove from heat. Cover pan and let stand until water is absorbed and bulgur is tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.

  2. Pour bulgur into a large serving bowl. Stir in lemon juice, olive oil, salt, cumin and cayenne and let cool to room temperature.

  3. Stir in cucumber, grapes, feta, mint and scallions. Serve, or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.
