Tabouli Salad

I have been craving this stuff like mad lately, it’s such a fresh salad with lots of flavor and it’s super good for you. Bulgar is an excellent source of fibre and for a grain is generally low in calories. Cilantro, the other main ingredient, amazingly high amount of vitamin A and lutien both good for the health of your eyes. Plus heart healthy olive oil for the win. I sometimes change this up by adding 1 cup of green onion instead of the red onion and a can of chickpeas.

Tabouli Salad

  • 1 cup of Bulgur
  • an entire bunch of cilantro, washed, stemmed, dried and chopped (approximately 3-4 cups)
  • 2-3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic grated
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

To cook the bulgur, boil water in kettle. Add 1 cup of dried bulgur to a medium-lage size heatproof mixing bowl. When water has reached a full boil add two cups, cover and let sit for about 45 mins.

While bulgur is cooling prepare ingredients. In a small bowl mix olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt and pepper.

Add dressing to cooled bulgur and mix. Top with veggies and refrigerate, mix before serving.
