Tabouleh


Tabouleh

Tabouleh is a traditional Arab Middle Eastern Dish. This recipe is a hand me down from my great grandmother who was born in Lebanon. It is very fresh, light and just scrumptious.

I always remember my Nana making this as I was a child and it was one of mine and my cousins favourite things!! Packed with fresh parsley and smothered in lemon juice this Bulgur wheat salad is a perfect accompaniment to many things.

Here I have served the Tabouleh with Falafels and Tatziki. A delicious, fresh and healthy summer meal!

This is best made a few hours in advance to allow all the flavours to infuse. It is best used on the same day but will keep refrigerated for up to two days.
