This is similar to Sweet Pasta Salad but uses bulgur instead.
Dressing: combine all ingredients and let sit while you prepare the rest.
Bulgur: Combine bulgur and water in a large mixing bowl and let sit for approximately 30 minutes or until all water has been absorbed, tossing lightly with a fork to aid absorption.
Chop the apple and soak in lemon juice until reacy for final combining to prevent apple from turning brown.
Combine bulgur wheat and all other ingredients in a very large mixing bowl and toss with dressing. Serve or refrigerate. This salad travels well and will keep about a week in the refrigerator.
NOTE: Bulgur is cracked wheat used in Middle Eastern food, such as Tabbouli Salad. It is available at Trader Joe's and Ralph's in a small red box under the brand name Ala.
