Recipe for Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh requires some work but it is certainly worth it. You need to make sure to chop the parsley and the mint very finely. You also need to make sure the bulgur wheat is soaked enough that it is soft but not mushy. Lastly, it is important to balance the acid from the lemon juice with the salt so taste the salad after mixing it and adjust the salt as necessary. Serve your tabbouleh with iceberg lettuce leaves so everyone can make lettuce wraps and eat it. Delicioso!

Here is what you are going to need to make tabbouleh:
3 cups finely chopped parsley
1 cup bulgur wheat
3 medium tomatoes
4 scallions, white and green parts chopped
2 tablespoons chopped mint
2 medium lemons, juiced
½ cup olive oil
Salt
Iceberg lettuce leaves

• Place the bulgur wheat in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak the wheat for about 30 minutes.
• Place the parsley in a bowl. Add all the vegetables.
• Using your hand squeeze out the water from the wheat, a handful at a time, and add to the parsley.
• Mix the salad well.
• Add the olive oil and the lemon juice. Mix well.
• Add the salt, to taste, until you have a good balance between the lemon and the salt.
• Serve the tabbouleh on iceberg lettuce leaves so people can make lettuce wraps. Enjoy!
