A wonderful fresh and healthy salad alternative to any meal. Especially delicious in the warmer months when fresh local ingredients are in abundance. Trying other versions of this Middle Eastern staple has left me with the knowledge that this particular salad has the right combination of ingredients.

  • Pour hot water over bulgur in a bowl; let soak until water is absorbed and bulgur is soft, about 30 minutes.

  • Mix parsley, tomato, green bell pepper, cucumber, green onions, and mint together in a large bowl. Add bulgur; toss to combine.

  • Drizzle dressing over bulgur mixture; toss to coat.

Cook's Note:

Any leftovers should be given a quick stir to mix any accumulated liquid back into salad.

Not sure what is meant by seasoned salt... I used Hy's Seasoning Salt plus the kosher salt, which made the recipe too salty IMO. I also added more mint. Will try a different recipe next time Read More

First time eating tabbouleh and it was great! Did not add mint but I did add 1 clove of crushed garlic to the dressing. Only added 1 cup of parsley and the whole thing was delicious!! Will make again!! Read More

MMMMMMMmmMMmMMmmmmMm! So Fresh and tastey! The perfect vegetarian main or side dish! It had lovely fresh flavors and the green pepper gave it the ideal about of crunch. I also threw in some chopped cucumber that I had in the fridge. I didnt measure anything out just cooked 2dl of bulgur up and chopped a ton of the suggested veggies. Only used half the dressing as it was already evenly coated by that point. Next time I will add chopped fresh chili peppers for a kick.:) Thanks so much for sharing!!! Read More

I have three boys so I'm always looking for healthy easy inexpensive recipes. This one hit all three of those criteria. I know it's a keeper when the whole family loves it! My 16 year old even asked if I'd make this again the next day. Only thing I changed was to mix a few extra fresh herbs from my herb garden in. Great way to use up the tomatoes cucumbers peppers and herbs from the garden. Read More

Added the garlic clove. Mint is hit and miss at my store so no mint but ordered some freeze dried for next time. I didn't follow the proportions but eyeballed it close. You can't really mess this up. I love it. Read More
