This is a real mix-em gather-em of whatever trickle of new season veg you can snaffle from the veg patch, using the bulgur to bulk it out and make a meal from them. It’s delicious served with some barbecued lamb chops and tzatziki. Use whatever fresh, new season veg you have to hand – I’ve even resorted to throwing in some very immature celery stalks with their leaves (delicious flavour) or some quick-blanched broad beans or peas.
Put the bulgur wheat in a bowl with the salt and add 2 cups of boiling water. Allow to stand for 10 minutes covered with a plate, until the bulgur has absorbed all the water. Strain off any excess water and leave it to cool.
In a large bowl, combine all the rest of the ingredients, add the bulgur wheat and mix it all up. Serves 4.
