Tabbouleh Salad

The secrets to a good Tabbouleh is using the most freshest of ingredients such as fresh parsley, tomatoes, cucumber, mint, onions and the right type of bulgar.

This tasty salad goes well alongside any type of dish and has been a typical side dish that has been served in the middle east for centuries.

Tabbouleh salad is something I have come to enjoy immensely over the years.

Actually I tried it for the first time at my local deli a few years back and liked it so much that returned to the market to find all the ingredients that night. 

Tabbouleh Salad

It took me some time to master the perfect combination and techniques to making the most tastiest of tabbouleh, but I’m sure i’ve done it now.

This salad has an a array of flavors that are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. And tastes much better than any store bought variety, believe me. 

You will want to start by using a “coarse Bulgur” variety, you can use  “fine coarse” Bulgur if you want, however I find the course works best because it gives more substance to the salad.  

Tasty Tabbouleh Salad

Also, I recommend using both lemons and limes for this recipe, however traditionally lemons are just used. Be sure to chop up all your fresh ingredients finely and mix  well before serving.

I hope you enjoy this version for my favorite tabbouleh salad.
