Tabbouleh is a famous dish in Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan. This salad is usually eaten in the Middle East with small lettuce leaves or fresh grape leaves.
Ingredients(Serving for Two):
One Bushel of Parsley
One Large Tomato
1/4 cup of Bulgur (Wheat)
One squeezed Lemon
One Cooking Spoon of Olive Oil
How to Prepare:
Wash the bulgur in a deep cup by filling it with water and gently pouring out the water.
Leave the bulgur to soak in cold water for 30 minutes.
Chop the parsley into very small pieces and clean it with cold water.
Dice the tomato and the cucumber finely and add it to a salad bowl with the parsley.
Squeeze the bulgur between your hands to press out the water and mix with the vegetables.
Chop some onion – as much as desired – and add it to the bowl.
Add a dash of salt, the lemon, and the Olive oil to the bowl and mix all together.
I’ve been served this salad plenty of times while out dining, but I didn’t know until now that it was tabouleh. Maybe I should try make some myself:)
Tabouleh and Fatoush are very famous in the Arab world.
