Tabbouleh- Middle Eastern Salad

Yum

 


Happy New Year!  This healthy salad will start the new year with some good eating habits. 

My family and I love eating this salad as a side dish and since it's packed with good for you ingredients there is no problem going back for seconds.







Ingredients:
  • 3 large handfuls of flat leaf parsley chopped
  • 1/2 handful of mint chopped
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes diced or sliced
  • 2 cups of cucumber (seeded) diced
  • 1 bunch of green onions chopped
  • 1/2 of a large red onion diced
  • 2 jalapenos seeded  diced
  • 1 cup dry Bulgar Wheat cooked (2 cups cooked)
  • all of lemon olive oil dressing (recipe below) 
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Note:  to seed the cucumber, simply scrap down the center with a spoon until all the seeds are gone. 


The Grain:
2 cups of Bulgar Wheat prepared.  To prepare Bulgar Wheat, measure 1 cup of dry Bulgar and place in a pot with 3-4 cups of water.  Bring water to a boil and boil bulgar for 12-15 minutes until the Bulgar softens.  Drain water and then wring out all the excess liquid from the Bulgar with your hands. 


Note:  You can also use Cous-Cous, brown or white rice or Quinoa instead of the Bulgar Wheat. Prepare those grains per their package instructions.


The Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic grated
  • Salt to taste
Directions:
Boil the Bulgar Wheat and squeeze dry.  Then prepare the dressing and set aside.  Prepare parsley, cucumbers, onion, tomatoes and toss with the Bulgar Wheat.  Pour Dressing over salad and allow to chill for 30 minutes before serving.  Makes about 8-10 cups of salad.  This makes a great side dish for any grilled meat.  Enjoy.
