This recipe came from an estate sale. I obtained it when I purchased the family collection from the Baxter Estate in Heath, Texas in 1984.



  1. Put tomato and pepper paste in a big bowl and melt them with boiling hot water.
  2. Add bulgur and 1 teaspoon salt into this mix and stir once.
  3. Cover with a thick kitchen towel and let it soak up the water for 10 minutes.
  4. Cut onion in half first then into very thin half moon shapes.
  5. In a little bowl knead onion with 1 teaspoon salt.
  6. Rinse salt and squeeze excessive water.
  7. Fluff bulgur with a fork.
  8. Add pepper flakes, ground pepper, cumin, mint flakes, oil, pomegranate syrup, lemon juice and kneaded onion.
  9. Mix well.
  10. At this point taste to see if it needs more lemon juice.
  11. Add banana peppers, spring onions, cucumber and parsley then mix well.
  12. Serve over lettuce leaves and place slices of tomato over top and serve immediately.
