In a pot, combine the bulgur and water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
Once the bulgur is cooked, place it in a large bowl with the two types of olives, dates, parsley, pistachios, red onion and salt. Mix well.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. If you're eating the salad right away, pour the dressing on top. If not, put the dressing in a small tupperware and dress when you're ready to eat.
