Rinse the bulgur wheat and add it to a small bowl. Pour hot water over the bulgur to cover, and let soak about 20 minutes, until doubled in size. Drain excess liquid, if any, and place the bulgur in a large bowl.
Chop the parsley to a medium-fine consistency (should not look pureed). Add the parsley to the bulgur and add all the remaining salad ingredients. Cover and set aside.
For the vinaigrette, in a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients. Add to salad; taste and adjust any seasonings. Best if let sit a few hours in the fridge for the flavors to meld.
