Fresh Tabbouleh

Rating: 4.33 stars
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.

Tasty twist on a Mediterranean classic. Serendipitous discovery when I didn't have any parsley on hand!

Savory Couscous Tabbouleh

Rating: 4.63 stars
A variant on traditional bulgur tabbouleh. Great to serve at potlucks because it can be served cold or warm! Even better left over! The longer it sits, the more the flavors meld together.

This bulgur salad is a lemony middle eastern treat! Bulgur is parboiled and dried wheat; soaking it in hot water is all the preparation required.

Whole Wheat Couscous Tabbouleh

Rating: 4.55 stars
This is a great vegetarian option to pasta salad. Great summertime recipe to accompany BBQ chicken or grilled meat.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Rating: 4.47 stars
This tabouli recipe is different. Instead of using bulgur like traditional tabouli, this recipe uses quinoa. It is a grain that is available at health food stores. It looks and tastes better than bulgur. My husband and I both love this and neither of us is vegetarian. It's a great meal for a hot summer day. The longer it sits the better it tastes.

A large bag of lemons, and the mint right outside the kitchen door inspired me to create this dish.
