Tabbouleh Salad Recipe


A simple tabbouleh recipe made with bulgur wheat and lots of fresh veggies and herbs.

Tabbouleh is a popular Middle Eastern salad made mostly of finely chopped parsley, diced tomatoes, mint, onion, and bulgur wheat, seasoned with fresh lime juice and olive oil.

The traditional tabbouleh is made with wheat bulgur, but you can use any other grains such as quinoa, couscous or pastas.

Some variations of Tabbouleh salad use lettuce or semolina instead of bulgur. Its popularity has grown in Western cultures and it is traditionally served as part of a mezze.
