Our tabbouleh recipe uses garden-fresh parsley. Tabbouleh is a Middle Eastern salad using parsley, bulgur wheat, tomatoes, and other healthy ingredients.
1/2-cup bulgur wheat*
2 medium to large tomatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
1 large cucumber, cut into bite sized pieces
1 small red onion, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cups finely chopped parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped mint
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (2-3 lemons)
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and drain the wheat. Mix the wheat with lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper; set it aside until the wheat absorbs the juice. Combine with the other ingredients for a delicious and healthy salad.
