Soak the Bulgur in very hot water (enough to cover the bulgur by 1″) along with a tablespoon of salt for 30 minutes.  Drain and rinse with cold water until completely cooled and drained.  Fluff and set aside.

Combine all the other ingredients (except the feta) and mix well.

Marinate these ingredients for up to an hour in the refrigerator.
