  Bulgur 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Preferably Fine)
  Minced parsley 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Thinly sliced scallions 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Minced mint 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Or To Taste)
  Lemon juice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Grated lemon zest 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Romaine lettuce leaves 4

1. Place the bulgur in a small bowl and rinse several times to remove any impurities. Add cold water to cover by 1 1/2 inches and soak for 45 minutes, or until tender. Drain in a fine sieve; then squeeze out excess moisture with your hands; the bulgur should be as dry as possible.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the bulgur, parsley, scallions and mint.
3. In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, pepper and oil. Stir this dressing into the bulgur mixture. Chill, covered, for 2 hours.
4. Just before serving, mix in the tomatoes, if desired. Serve on lettuce leaves.
