This is a really simple and fast salad for the summer although it keeps well in the refrigerator for two days. You can use whatever herbs you have available and vary quantities to taste. It can be eaten on its own or as part of a meal such as pies, meats or fish. If you cannot get bulgur wheat, you can substitute couscous.
