Tabbouleh is a traditional Arabic salad, that originates from the mountains of Syria and Lebanon.
It is usually made of bulgur (sometimes replaced with couscous), parsley, mint, tomatoes, red onions, garlic, drizzled with lemon infused olive oil, and is a classic mezze dish (often served on romaine lettuce leaves).
Thanks to it’s fresh, cool and minty character I think of it as the perfect summer side dish…and it goes very well with just about any BBQ’ed meat (especially lamb)!
Since bulgur is wheat, it’s not for me…so what I bring to the table today is my wheat free version of the classic dish (which, if you ask me, works just as good).
Done, serve as a side, relax and enjoy!
Over the next two weeks, I’ll post the rest of the components (1, 2) I used to make the dish I served the Tabbouleh to this time (but, by all means, don’t wait until then to give this awesome side dish a try!) ;)
Have a great week now (…or in the spirit of the Tabbouleh; “May the sun always shine upon your path, and the most beautiful Lilies grow in your shadow“)!
(What?!! …mm, dunno, just though it had an Arabic ring to it. :)
Anyway…I kinda liked it so I think that’ll be my greeting for the week, ha! ;)
