 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           coarsely ground bulgur
                         cold water to cover
      1/3  cup           finely chopped onion
      1/2  cup           chopped parsley
    3      medium        tomatoes -- chopped
      1/3  cup           lemon juice
    1      teaspoon      kelp powder or salt
      1/4  cup           olive oil
    2      tablespoons   finely chopped fresh mint, OR
    1      tablespoon    dried mint
                         Garnish:
                         romaine lettuce
                         fresh parsley or mint
 
 Place bulgur in a bowl and pour enough cold water over bulgur to cover 
 completely. Allow it to soak for about 10-15 minutes.
 
 Drain bulgur in a sieve or colander lined with a double thickness of
 dampened cheesecloth. Wrap the bulgur in the cheesecloth and squeeze
 it vigorously until completely dry.
 
 Place the drained bulgur in a deep bowl and add the chopped onion,
 parsley, tomatoes, lemon juice and kelp powder or sal. Toss the
 mixture gently but thoroughly. Place in refrigerator, covered, for
 about one hour to blend flavors.  Just before serving, stir in the
 olive oil and the chopped mint; adjust seasoning.  Mound the salad in
 a serving dish surround by romaine lettuce leaves. Garnish with
 additional mint or fresh parsley, if desired.
 
 4-6 servings.
