This was super delicious. I used Millet instead of bugler for the gluten-free option. I also forgot to add the cumin. I still thought it was great. And my husband liked it too. It's a keeper.

very good and stands up well the next day I used cherry tomatoes for a better presentation and doubled up on the lemon juice

This is one of my favorite healthy meals to make. Sometimes I don't get the rotisserie chicken, i just put the some frozen chicken in a skillet with 1/2 cup water and season with salt, pepper and a little lemon juice. Then I cut the chicken up in cubes. the best thing about this dish is that it's even better the next day. The longer it sits the better it tastes. I'll prep it the day before if I have the time, and it's perfect for lunches for the following week.

Delicious quick meal - I think it came together in 20 minutes flat. Used a regular cucumber and seeded it. Also, I cut the parsley in half and made up the difference with fresh thyme. Definitely a keeper meal for hot summer days!

Really good, even my skeptical husband really enjoyed this one. We couldn't find bulgur, so we used whole wheat Israeli couscous. I also reduced the parsley and mint by half. Look forward to making this one again, hopefully with the bulgur.

This is a great meal. Tasty and quick enough to make on a week night. One of the few I don't make any substitutions on. Even my picky husband likes it! This is in our regular meal rotation on a biweekly basis.

I love this recipe. I use Italian parsley and usually a bit more mint then it calls for. I increase the lemon juice as well. I also add green or red bell pepper and avocado. Its a great summer meal.

This was really delicious! Even my kids liked this recipe. The only thing I would do differently is to reduce the parsley by half. We had baby carrots and hummus as a side. I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch!
