Mediterranean Bulgur Wheat & Chickpea Salad

Mediterranean Bulgur Wheat Salad

This is a great salad for summer…light and bright flavors from the lemon and cilantro with bursts of saltiness from the olives and the cheese.  Goes great with grilled meat, as a base for a “bowl,” an addition to a pita or enjoy all by itself!
