Tabbouli ingredients:

Fresh mint and green onion:

Mint in this salad is standard and adds even more fresh flavor. That’s said ,it can be a expensive if you do not grow it at your home ,so you can be skip it if you’d rather .

Green onion is my mild onion of choice. It’s perfect in Tabbouli .

Fresh parsley :

Authentic tabbouli uses a ton of parsley . That’s why this salad is so strong . I try both flat-leaf & curly ,and its for once ,curly is a way to go . Even when it’s chopped very small ,curly parsley offers some extra volume that makes this Tabbouli so pleasant.

Cucumber and Tomato:

Fresh cucumber & tomato add more textuare and colored ,and built on the refreshing factors . Lebanese reader are informed me that cucumber is a unusual in tabbouli ,which was new to me . You can skip it if you’d like ,but it’s quite nice .

Olive oil ,lemon juice and Garlic :

Tabbouli is dressed in a simple combination of olive oil and lemon juice. You won’t find garlic in every Tabbouli recipe ,but I think that one clove makes thus recipe extra delicious.

Bulgur :

Bulgur is parboiled cracked wheat ,so it’s a hole grain . Once prepared it’s tender and fluffy. Bulgur is often confused with couscous ,but they’re not the same . (Couscous is actually tiny pasta).

Authentic tabbouli is made with super fine grain bulgur and it’s soaked rather than cooked,but I haven’t been able to find it at regular grocery stores . There are several other varieties of bulgurs ,and you’ll probably find only one option at the store .So cook or soak it according to the package directions.
