Great recipe! I was really surprised how much I enjoyed it. However I would reduce the amount of oil next time. I used a high quality oil and it was too rich. I also used cilantro instead of parsley which I like. I imagine this recipe would taste great with cucumbers too. Read More

The idea is great, and I will make this again, but with modifications. There was way too much oil in this. The oil basically overpowered what should have been the fresh, delicious flavours of the ingredients. Next time I will halve the oil, but keep the same amount of lemon juice, add more vegetable layers, like cucumber and sweet red pepper, and maybe add a few chopped toasted walnuts on top to give it some crunch.

Excellent! This recipe was a huge succes with all my friends. I like this version since it is more nutricious for vegetarians. I added virgin olive oil and a little bit more lemon juice since the bulgur absorbs lots of the juice. It is good to replace the bulgur with couscous sometimes. I always keep it in the fridge for a few hours before serving. Read More

The base recipe has a few problems but you can modify it to make it delicious. Use half or less the amount of oil. I added salt curry and powdered ginger and it was wonderful. The recipe is also wonderful with quinoa instead of bulghur although that's not a necessity. Read More

This salad is very good and very easy. I did not layer it as the recipe calls for just tossed all of the ingredients together and let them meld in the fridge for a while. Read More

This recipe is pretty good. I made a few alterations along the way. I cut back the lemon to half of what the recipe called for used extra virgin olive oil instead of veggie oil and instead of topping with carrots I topped it with fresh slices of avocado. Read More

Very healthy and nutritious meal. When I was preparing this dish I really didnt think I was going to like it. But once I ate it it tasted great. It has a Middle Eastern flavor. Very good. Read More

A delicious alternative to regular tabouleh-- the garbonzos add a nice contrasting texture and flavor and give the salad the ability to stand on its own as a meal. Very moist and flavorful. Read More
