Place the bulgur wheat and boiling water in a pan, place the pan on a high heat and bring back to the boil. Clamp a lid on and turn the heat off completely (move off the burner if you are on electric) and leave for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare all the other ingredients and place in a large bowl. When the bulgur wheat is ready, tip into a fine mesh sieve and run under the cold tap until the bulgur wheat is cool/cold. Ensure the bulgur wheat has drained thoroughly, then add it to the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Transfer to a serving dish (if necessary) and serve. Or place in a plastic box and store in the fridge until needed.
Alternatively, if you have more time. You can allow the bulgur wheat to cool naturally before adding in the other in the other ingredients.
