2 medium tomatoes
½ teaspoon of sea salt

1 garlic clove minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook the bulgar wheat as per the packet instructions, drain and set aside to cool.
Finely slice the red onion and add to a small bowl ﬁlled with cold water to soak and soften the ﬂavour.
Finely dice the cucumber and tomatoes and toss with ½ teaspoon of sea salt. Then palace in a mesh strainer over a bowl to drain some of the excess liquid.
Remove the red onion from the water, roughly chop the Liberation Foods Seeds & Nuts with Goji Berries and ﬁnely chop the parsley and mint. Add these to a large mixing bowl with the bulgar wheat, cucumber and tomatoes, then mix to combine.
Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, zest, and garlic in a small mixing bowl. Pour over the bulgar wheat and toss. Season with salt and pepper to taste and transfer onto a serving dish.
