Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/3 cup bulgur -- medium or coarse
1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup pecan halves
2 small Roma tomatoes -- seeded and chopped
1/4 cucumber, English
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

moderately low heat, shaking skillet frequently, until a shade darker, 4 to
5 minutes. Cool pecans and chop. Seed tomato and chop. Chop cucumber.

3. In a small bowl whisk together oil, lemon juice, honey, spices, pepper,

pecans, and dill. Drizzle with dressing and toss well. Divide greens
