Non-Traditional Tabbouleh Salad with Pineapple and Pomegranate Seeds
This salad was served at a traditional Lebanese restaurant, and I could not wait to go home and duplicate the taste. It is definitely a twist on the traditional salad, and my Lebanese brother-in-law insists it should not be called 'tabbouleh.' All I know is that it is very tasty and has the majority of the ingredients of a 'traditional' tabbouleh salad.
I buy pre-cut pineapple and pomegranate seeds to save on time.
The salad can be prepared ahead of time, but do not add lemon juice, olive oil, or seasonings until just before serving.
Use Lebanese or English varietals of cucumber for best results.
