This tabouli recipe is as authentic as they come.
I love Middle Eastern recipes.
They are SO healthy and combine wonderful flavors in often simple dishes that taste spectacular.
This one is no exception.
Meanwhile, finely chop both the parsley and the mint. Chop the green onions.
In a bowl, place the bulgar, parsley, mint, onions, lemon juice, salt and oil. Finely chop the tomato and add it to the salad.
Serve this salad on a bed romaine lettuce, or with small pieces of romaine for scooping. It is also perfect served with other Middle Eastern delicacies like this falafel recipe or simply with pita bread.

Did You Know?...
Take this recipe for tabouli, often also spelled tabbouleh (probably the original spelling) or tabouleh.
Parsley is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It is rich with Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol) and is a good source of protein. It is also an excellent source of things like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Iron, Folate, Calcium, Manganese, Copper and Potassium. It is low in both cholesterol and saturated fat.
Parsley is a staple in a Mediterranean diet and is featured in this unique recipe. Here it is combined with bulgur wheat, a very healthy whole grain, as well as lemon juice and olive oil, all healthy ingredients.
Tabouli is a staple in Lebanon, where it originated. It is now served in other cultures as well. (I am sure it will get emails telling me it actually originates somewhere else, but my source says Lebanon).
If you like Middle Eastern recipes and cuisine, you must give tabbouleh a try.
It is healthy, has a unique flavor, and pairs really well with other recipes from the region.
