2 tbsp medium-coarse or fine bulgur (can be found in Middle-Eastern food-store)
1 medium size bunch of finely chopped fresh parsley
1 medium size bunch of finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 bunch (8-10) chopped scallions
2 medium chopped tomatoes
3 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp of hot pepper paste (if you cannot find, you can skip it)
Juice of 1/2 of Lemon
salt to taste

Bring to a boil 1 cup of water in a small pot. Put 2 tablespoons of bulgur and stir. Boil it for 20 seconds and drain in a sieve. Let it stand.

Mix all the fine-chopped ingredients in the salad bowl. Add prepared bulgur, add olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper paste.

P.S. Hot pepper paste gives red color and heat to the salad. You can add fresh finely chopped chili pepper. If you wish, you can also add fresh mint ( about 1/2 cup)
