Cracked wheat salad with cucumbers and garden-fresh tomatoes. Stehling
serves this dish alongside grilled mahi-mahi, with marinated arugula and
minted yogurt sauce. The salad uses bulghur wheat. "It's sort of a takeoff
on tabbouleh," he says. Bulghur wheat is wheat kernels that have been
steamed, dried and crushed. It has a tender, chewy texture.
