Made this for dinner tonight and would thoroughly recommend it. The only changes I'd advise...
1. Add less lemon juice to the bulghar wheat
2. Add a variety of herbs to the bulghar wheat...I used mint, parsley and coriander.

Made these using dana kiyma and both me and the boyfriend really enjoyed it. Was a little bit apprehensive about the tahini dressing as tasted really strong and also had to thin mine out quite a bit as our Greek yoghurt was especially thick. However, tahini dressing worked amazingly well with the flavours. It's already on the menu for next week!

Very good recipe. Add some cucumber to the bulghar salad, and make extra dressing!
