Add bulgur to a heat proof bowl and pour boiling water over it. Add salt, cover and let stand for 30 minutes. Drain any excess water that hasn't been absorbed.
Let the bulgur cool, then add to bowl with cucumber, grapes, feta and parsley. Toss to combine.
In a small bowl stir lemon juice and olive oil and season with salt and pepper. The dressing should have a distinct lemon taste. Mix with the salad and let stand at least 30 minutes before serving. Chill of not serving right away.
