The idea is great, and I will make this again, but with modifications. There was way too much oil in this. The oil basically overpowered what should have been the fresh, delicious flavours of the ingredients. Next time I will halve the oil, but keep the same amount of lemon juice, add more vegetable layers, like cucumber and sweet red pepper, and maybe add a few chopped toasted walnuts on top to give it some crunch.-26 Sep 2007


Great recipe! I was really surprised how much I enjoyed it. However, I would reduce the amount of oil next time. I used a high quality oil and it was too rich. I also used cilantro instead of parsley, which I like. I imagine this recipe would taste great with cucumbers too.-29 Mar 2002

Excellent! This recipe was a huge succes with all my friends. I like this version since it is more nutricious for vegetarians. I added virgin olive oil and a little bit more lemon juice since the bulgur absorbs lots of the juice. It is good to replace the bulgur with couscous sometimes. I always keep it in the fridge for a few hours before serving.-09 Jan 2003
