Tabouli Salad


To accompany many of my spicy North African and Middle Eastern dishes, I decided to share a Tabouli salad. It doesn't require any spices, so it's mild, but the heavy amount of parsley really marries well with any spicy dish. It creates balance by adding something light to the heavy meals. Everything can be adjusted according to taste. Feel free to add more tomato, or change the dressing. I eat this with a meal, and not as a salad alone. If I ate it as a salad alone, I would add more tomatoes, scallions, and even cucumber. We've had it with couscous, kebabs, and different tagine recipes. I love it with pita bread and hummus as well.




Tabouli Salad
Serving Size = 2
  • 1/4 cup of bulgur, soaked for 2 1/2 hours
  • 2 cups or so of Italian Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
Dressing
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons oil (EVOO, grapeseed, I used walnut oil)
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons honey
  • Salt, about 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Black pepper
(All to taste)
  1. Drain the bulgur and squeeze out excess water.
  2. Mix together all of the ingredients for the salad.
  3. Mix together all of the dressing ingredients.
  4. Combine and serve.

Oh my goodness! This kind of recipe is certainly perfect for our family gathering tomorrow! I love it coz’ it’s quite unique, healthy and exotic. Well for me, I consider it exotic because of the herbs or veggies included. Just kidding! I bet my mom and dad will definitely love it!
