Lebanese Tabbouleh Salad

Lebanese Tabbouleh Salad

Super-Green!

Tabbouleh (also known as Tabouli) is a healthy green authentic Lebanese salad. It’s made from bulgur, tomatoes, finely chopped parsley, mint, and onion, seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

Highly nutritious with all the parsley; which is rich in vitamins A, C and K, and packed with flavonoids and antioxidants. If you want a gluten-free version, try substituting the Burgul with Quinoa. 

In traditional Lebanese cuisine, Tabbouleh is usually served along with mezze, a selection of small dishes served at the beginning of a large-scale meal. It can be eaten in pita bread, scooped onto pita bread, or eaten traditionally with a fork.
