My family really enjoys eating salads, especially when it’s hot outside. This tabbouleh salad that I grew up with is a tradition in my home and it’s a great dish for summer vacation. Tabbouleh is a Mediterranean salad made with wheat, tomatoes, onion and mint, and served with hummus and pita bread. It’s a truly delicious salad that satisfies everyone, and now I want to share my special recipe with you.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (bulgur) cracked wheat
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup chopped mint
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Directions

  • 1
    Place two cups of bulgur in a bowl and add two cups of water. Let the wheat absorb the water (20 minutes). When ready, fluff it with a fork to separate the grains.
  • 2
    Pour the wheat into a large salad bowl and add the tomatoes, cilantro, mint and onion. Mix the ingredients and dress with lemon juice, olive oil and salt.
  • 3
    Toss together and serve with pita bread or as a side with grilled meat, on top of a green salad or as a fill-ing for stuffed avocado.

Expert Tips

  • If you can’t find fresh mint, you can use dried mint instead.
