Fresh seasonings jazz up bulgur in this bright and simple side. Combined with ripe tomatoes and green onions, this scrumptious dish from Millie McDonough of Homeland, California is a winner.

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped

  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Just before serving, stir in the tomatoes and onions.
