DISCOVER TABBOULEH

Tabbouleh (Arabic: تبولةtabūlah; also tabouleh or tab(b)ouli) is a Levantine vegetarian dish (sometimes considered a salad) traditionally made of tomatoes, finely chopped parsley, mint, and onion, and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Bulgur is often added to the dish; some variations add garlic or lettuce, or use couscous instead of bulgur.

Traditionally served as part of a mezze in the Arab world, tabbouleh was adopted by Cypriots and Israelis, variations of it are made by Turks and Armenians, and it has become a popular ethnic food in Western cultures.

IT IS A WHEAT GRAIN THAT I NEVER REALIZED WAS SO EASY TO MAKE!

I USED NEAR EAST BRAND TABOULEH.  YOU PUT IT IN YOUR SERVING BOWL .   ADD THE SPICE PACKET AND 1 CUP OF BOILING WATER.  PLACE IN REFRIGERATOR FOR 30 MINUTES AND IT IS DONE!  I MADE IT GREEK TABOULEH BY ADDING:

1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup chopped cucumber
4 oz Feta Crumbles (Treasure Cove)

INSTEAD OF THE OLIVE OIL AND LEMON JUICE, I ADDED 1/4 CUP OF MY FAVORITE GREEK DRESSING (KRAFT FETA AND OREGANO) WHICH I CAN ONLY FIND IN CANADA (NOT IN THE USA – NOT SURE WHY).

ANOTHER GRAIN TO ROUND OUT YOUR MEAL – GREAT FOR SUMMER WHEN LOOKING FOR COLD SALADS AND TOMATOES AND CUKES ARE ABUNDANT!
