Get in my belly Tabouleh

Mmmmmmm Tabouleh!  Who can resist this healthy and delicious treat?  Enjoy some for lunch, as a salad side or a nutritious snack!  So fresh, so tasty, so what are you waiting for?  Get some in your belly!

1 cup bulgar or for the cheat version, use 1 package (5.25 oz) Near East 100% Natural Taboule Mix (equally if not more delicious!)
2 scallions finely chopped
1 cup grape tomatoes chopped
2/3 cup chick peas
1/2 cup chopped parsley
Juice of 2 limes (you can start with one lime and add another if you like it tangier-I do!)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1.  Prepare bulgar or Near East 100% Natural Taboule Mix according to directions.

2.  Add all of the other ingredients to bulgar and give it a good mix so that all the ingredients are deliciously combined.

3.  Chill in the refrigerator for ~45 minutes.

4.  Enjoy this alone, on a bed of romaine or with fresh toasted pita or naan!
