Put bulghur in a heatproof bowl. Bring water to a boil and pour over bulghur. Let bulghur stand 1 hour.
While bulghur is soaking, in a large bowl stir together onion, salt, allspice, and dried mint, if using (do not add fresh mint now), and let stand 30 minutes. Drain bulghur in a sieve, pressing hard to extract as much water as possible, and add to onion mixture with remaining ingredients, including fresh mint, if using.
Toss salad well and season with salt and pepper.
