TABOULEH (ARABIC SALAD)

Tabouleh






This salad is widely used in the middle east especially with lebanese food. I always loved this salad and always wanted to make on my own for ages. Today as I got time I searched through few websites and u know what!! its as simple as it looks :).. so here goes the tasty and very healthy recipe :)


Ingredients :


Parsley - around half cup chopped finely with stems avoided
Mint leaves - around 6-7 leaves chopped finely
Bulghar - 1 tsp soaked for 1 1/2 - 2 hours (wheat)
Tomato - 1/4 piece chopped finely
Onion - 1/4 piece chopped finely
Pepper - a pinch grounded
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Extra virgin olive oil - 1 - 2 tsp as per ur taste
Salt


Preparation :


Once soaked and soft, dry the bulghar with cloth or press lightly with your hand to remove the excess water. Mix all te ingredients and chill for about an hour before serving so that all the flavour gets locked into the salad. My quantities are very less in this as I had very few parsley leaves left behind. Be free ot add any veggie to this like cucumber and carrot. The salad available in dubai are mainly of only parsley, lemon juice,olive oil, salt, tomato and bulghar. So this is my version :)..
Healthy salad to live healthy :)






Cheers
Neetz ;)
