TABOULEH..It is highly adaptable to your own tastes. I LOVE THIS STUFF!

During Summer months, I add fresh cut corn OFF the cobb and FRESH garden tomatoes and a jalapeno. Extra tomatoes~

This is the basic recipe.
I encourage you to try seasonal vegies from your garden or market in it and definitely TASTE and ADJUST SEASONINGS to your liking.

My pic is strictly by the recipe for now.

Yes, it is a "salad"..BUT we eat bowl-fulls of the stuff w/white corn chips "Dip" style. I bring it to nearly every backyard get together..which would also indicaate that it goes well w/Budweiser!

1 c
medium-grind bulghur (might be labeled as #2 grade)
1 c
boiling water
1 c
diced tomato
1 c
1/2 c
diced onion or green onions
1 c
chopped parsley
1/4 c
chopped mint or cilantro or dill
1/4 c
lemon juice (or juice of 1 lemon)
1/3 c
1 clove
garlic minced
1 tsp
salt (i use more)
1 tsp
black pepper


1You need 3 bowls
-one for soaking the bulghur
-one for chopping the vegies ..make this one BIG for mixing/serving because this salad tends to grow larger the more you think to add to it.
-one small one for making the dressing in.
2Bowl one-
Mix the bulghur and boiling water in a bowl and cover.
Let it sit about 15 minutes, or as long as it takes you to cut up everything.
3Bowl two-
Cut up everything..I like small pieces (think corn kernel size or just a tad bigger)

You may find versions that tell you to remove seeds from tomatoes first--DON'T they're good for you! lol
I do remove the seeds from cucumber first though..just cause I don't like them.
4Bowl three-
Mix the lemon juice, oil and salt & pepper together
5Add the bulghur to the vegetables and herbs
Mix well..hands are best :-)
6Pour the dressing over it all and mix well.
7Cover and Refridgerate at least an hour for flavors to blend.

Eat it..
You can serve on or with greens but REALLY there are plenty of vegies in here already.
We eat it "dip" style w/white corn tortilla chips. The salt and crunch lends nicely to this.
