Here is another super healthy salad I made for our Mediterranean party.  Tabbouleah is made with bulgar wheat and does not require any cooking.

I served it as a part of a meal.  It was one of many sides for my Mediterranean party.  Full menu here.

This recipe was on the side of the bulgar packet. I followed the recipe almost exactly.  I added more pepper than the original recipe. 

Here is what you need:

  • 1 cup bulgar wheat
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 english cucumber diced
  • 1 cup parsley, chopped
  • 5 -6 mint leaves, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1- 2  tsp. black pepper
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp. olive oil

Here is how I made it:

  1. Mix bulgar and boiling water and soak for 1 hour.  I put it in a tupperware container and covered it. 
  2. Drain and squeeze out the water. 
  3. Mix all the other ingredients and let sit for an hour.
You can make this and store it for a few days in the fridge.  Makes a great addition to a Mediterranean menu or a healthy lunch idea!
