Instructions

  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.
