Tabouli Salad

  1. Place the bulgur in a small heatproof bowl and pour 1-1/4 cups of boiling water over it.
  2. Cover tightly and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. In a large bowl combine the radishes, cucumbers, tomatoes, and bulgur. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Whisk together the dressing and pour over the tabouli. Mix until well combined. This can be made ahead and stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature before serving.
