We love this salad (or accompaniment) with our falafel pita pockets.


1 cup bulghur wheat, or cracked wheat
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 tbsp  lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup red onion, minced
8 mint leaves, chopped finely
1 bunch parsley, chopped finely
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped


Place the bulghur in a large bowl and pour over the boiling water. Stir, then allow to stand at room temperature for about 1 hour.

Add the green onion, mint, parsley, cucumber, tomatoes, and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.  The flavor will improve if the tabbouleh sits for a few hours.


About theideasbook

Lover of yummy food! Would love a small farm or a plot of land to grow veggies and herbs on day. Until then, I seek to find the best foods around me (and what I can grow in pots!) to create divine recipes that the whole family loves - including the kids! Making good food choices and teaching my kids think about the food that they eat.
