Fresh to the land of OZ, I was smitten with this Middle Eastern salad. The crunchy, nutty texture of Bulghur wheat, the fresh crisp diced cucumber, tomatoes and the fresh herbs :D
Spoonful of yums and a mouthful of freshness...

I got one problem...

I am pretty sure whoever behind the counter could hear me say "Tak Boleh" which is a malay word for cannot, or unable.

So lets leave it as that.... You can't teach old dog new trick!
No matter how I try... it always came out "Tak Boleh!!!" ;P
