Middle eastern cuisine is fresh, seasonal and flavourful. No quality summer dinner menu would be complete without a classic Tabbouleh salad! Tabbouleh is a Levantine vegetarian dish made of tomatoes, finely chopped parsley, mint, bulgur, and onion, and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Some variations add garlic or lettuce, or use couscous instead of bulgur.
Not able to have gluten, fear not! Superfood quinoa tastes even better than the wheat grains in this Tabbouleh recipe!
A drizzle of our Sahara Delights Cold Pressed Artisan Olive Oil on this salad will make the freshness of each ingredient burst off the plate and dance with the lemon juice, scallions and mint!
Our culinary tip is to make sure all the excess water is drained from the parsley to maximize the crisp and crunchiness of the salad!
