With the warmer months approaching, salads are a real winner for a side dish and as this is a traditional dish in our family – I simply had to share it. A tasty, refreshing and healthy dish which I can’t get enough of and my kids love it too. It’s also really simple to make and needs a minimal amount of ingredients. It’s a perfect vegan salad.
Simple and Tasty Tabbouleh Recipe
The ingredients for this recipe can be sourced from most shops and as I mentioned, really easy to make. My top tip for this dish is to make sure there are more parsley and mint than bulgur wheat.
1/3 cup of Bulgur wheat
Juice of 2 lemons
3 large bunches of fresh parsley
1/4 cup of fresh mint
3 large tomatoes – dice small
Salt and pepper to taste
2/3 tablespoons of olive oil
Leaves of Gem lettuce to serve
- Whilst soaking the bulgur wheat, prepare all the other ingredients – allow at least 30 minutes for soaking and taste the bulgar to make sure it’s softened before draining.
- Remove the stems of the parsley and chop. I use my Nutribullet to chop my herbs.
- Drain the bulgur wheat well, add the chopped parsley and mint. Then add the lemon juice, salt and pepper, diced tomatoes and olive oil.
- You can add spring onions to this recipe if you wish and there should always be more green than anything else!
It’s very easy and quick to make and tastes amazing. I hope you get a chance to make this!
