Zesty, Refreshing and Unique


tabouliSalad I’ve been eating a lot of salads these last two months and I really have to share this one because it makes a terrific dip, a good side dish and a healthy snack!

Tabouli
1 cup fine bulgur (cracked wheat)
1 cups very hot water
1/2 cucumber, finely chopped (no seeds)
1/2 large vine tomato, finely chopped (no seeds)
1/4 cup of red onions, finely chopped
2 cups fresh chopped parsley (flat leaf)
2 cloves garlic, minced

Dressing:
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon pepper
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

Soak the bulgur (cracked wheat) in the hot water until the water is absorbed, about 30 minutes. When it's ready, drain any excess water, if necessary, and squeeze dry.

Prepare tomatoes, cucumbers and onions (do not use any of the seeds and cut in small pieces) and mix the dressing ingredients together. Set aside.

Stir the bulgur gently together with other salad ingredients and dressing in a medium bowl. Do not press down with fork; instead fluff to mix evenly. The predominant color should be green.

Serve chilled with bagel chips or as a side for pork, lamb and fish. Makes about 4 cups.

Here’s a recipe card for you! :)
