Shrimp, Cucumber Salad with Feta

I have been waiting for the weather to warm up so I can start making salads. I've been wanting to make this salad for a while. It's from Women's Health and very nutritious.

Shrimp, Cucumber Salad with Feta my way

1/2 cup bulgur
1 cup boiling water
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
10 ounces cooked shrimp
1 small cucumber, peeled and diced
1 pint grape tomatoes, stem ends cut off and halved
1/2 finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Pour boiling water over bulgur, cover and let sit for 15 minutes until water is absorbed. Let cool.

Place shrimp in a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons lemon juice and sprinkle with pepper. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Stir in cucumber, tomatoes, onion, parsley, oil, and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Add remaining lemon juice and toss.

Stir in cooled bulgur.

This salad was refreshing and delicious. I served it with warm crusty bread and we both loved it. Enjoy!
