1 cup bulgur -- see * Note
1 teaspoon salt
15 1/2 ounces canned garbanzo beans (chickpeas) -- rinsed, drained
1 cup diced plum tomatoes
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Bring 2 cups water to boil in medium saucepan. Remove from heat; add bulgur and salt and stir to blend. Cover and let stand until bulgur is just tender, about 20 minutes. Drain well, pressing to extract excess water. Transfer bulgur to large bowl; cool. Mix in remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
