Directions

1. In a medium skillet, heat 1/4 cup of the olive oil. Add the bulgur and toss over high heat until coated with oil, about 1 minute; remove from the heat. Stir in 3/4 cup of hot water, cover and soak until the water is absorbed and the bulgur is tender, at least 1 hour.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the lemon and lime juices with the salt and pepper. Add the scallions, mint, remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the soaked bulgur; toss well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or longer.
3. Cut the tops from the tomatoes and hollow out the centers. Toss the bulgur salad well and spoon it into the tomatoes.
