Tabbouleh Salad Recipe

Tabbouleh Recipe is a delicious salad of broken wheat that is filled with parsley, tomatoes and cucumber. I love to season it the traditional way along with lots of parsley, lemon juice, Saffola Oil. You can add carrots or your choice of vegetable and taste as you go along.

How to make Tabbouleh Salad

  • Combine bulgur along with 1-1/2 cups of boiling water in a large bowl. Cover the pan and allow the bulgur to rest and soak in the water for about an hour until most of the water is absorbed. Drain any excess water
  • To the soaked bulgur/couscous, add lemon juice, onions, parsley, tomatoes, and cucumber, along with the salt and pepper. Toss well to combine all the ingredients well
  • Cover and refrigerator for at least half an hour. This helps to bring out the flavours of the parsley and lemon well into the bulgur
  • Serve Tabbouleh along with a warm with Pita Bread, Falafel and Hummus
  • It makes a perfect packed lunch that is nutritious and filling too
