Tabbouleh

7 Feb

Tabbouleh is a very popular dish in the middle east. It is considered one of the most healthy salads. It’s a part of the popular Lebanese Meze. And the word Tabbouleh is derived from the Arabic, meaning seasoning.  It’s popular in Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, and with some variations in the Armenian and Turkish cuisine.

It’s a very easy dish to prepare. The main ingredients are parsley and burghul. So the recipe goes with the mix of a big bunch of very fine chopped parsley, a handful of fine burghul wheat, soaked in water for 15 min, chopped onions, I added some green onions, chopped tomatoes in small cubes,  a juice of a lemon or lime, good quality olive oil and salt and pepper. It is usually served with Romaine Lettuce; some persons would like to eat it with pita bread. Try this delicious dish and tell me what you think. Enjoy.
