While we technically use a "recipe" for this healthy side dish (or light lunch, like I enjoy it!), you can wing the measurements a bit and still end up loving it. Serve with hummus, flatbread, olives and feta cheese for a fun meze arrangement.

1 c. water
1 c. fine cracked wheat (we use a plain box of couscous)
1 c. minced fresh parsley leaves
1/2 c. minced fresh mint leaves
1/2 c. finely chopped yellow onion
3 tomatoes, diced
2 cucumbers, seeded and diced
3 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. sea salt
In a large mixing bowl, pour the water over the cracked wheat and cover. Let stand about 20 minutes. Add the chopped herbs and vegetables and toss with the oil, lemon juice and salt. Chill and serve.
