This looks like a lot of work because there are quite a few ingredients, but trust me- its so easy and DELICIOUS! "Beans are an amazing source of plant-based protein and carbohydrates. Whole-grain bulgur wheat is loaded with hunger-fighting fiber. Feta cheese adds calcium for strong bones. Make a large batch of this light and refreshing salad in the beginning of the week and you’ll have a great post-workout meal that’s ready when you are. Ingredients 1/2 cup boiling water 1/3 cup uncooked bulgur 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided 1/3 cup canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained 2 tablespoons chopped peeled cucumber 2 tablespoons chopped celery 2 tablespoons diced red onion 1 1/2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried dill 2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Preparation Combine 1/2 cup boiling water, bulgur, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a medium bowl. Let mixture stand for 15 minutes. Add chickpeas, cucumber, celery, diced red onion, 1 1/2 tablespoons feta cheese, and dill; toss gently to combine. Combine 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over bulgur mixture, and toss gently to coat. Cover and chill."

I love Mediterranean salads. Especially ones that include lots of feta. This sounds great.
