TABOULEH A SUMMER FAVORITE

Jun 01, 2018 02:00AM
Tabouleh is a favorite summer salad – rich in protein, vitamins, and surprisingly satisfying. There are lots of tabouleh recipes out there, and you can make it with couscous or cracked wheat, or other tiny grains. The key to a good tabbouleh, though, is to load it up with parsley. True tabbouleh is actually a parsley salad! The nice thing about this salad is that it keeps well in the refrigerator for several days and tastes good chilled or at room temperature.
