Tabouli Salad

Zelda Hopkins


This Recipe was given to me when my son was 9 years old. It is really good. Tabouli is a mediterranian salad. It goes great any meal, and keeps exceptionally well. The lightness of bulger {cracked Wheat} mixed with ripe plum tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and lots of chopped parsley makes for an extra- refreshing summertime salad.
