Tafooleh

Traditional tabouli (some spell it tabbouleh) is mainly comprised of bulgar wheat and it’s sprinkled with some tomato, onion and spices. So we’re foolin’ ya! We take the grains out completely and punch up the flavor. It’s really refreshing and goes  great with grilled, charred meats and seafood or all by itself.

Ingredients

  • 1 pt. cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 4 lemons, juiced and zested
  • handful of mint
  • 4 glugs of olive oil
  • S & P

Method

Roughly chop the tomatoes, cucumber and mint and place in a large bowl. Dice the onion as small as you can and add to the bowl. Add the zest of 2 lemons and the juice of 4, along with the olive oil and some salt & pepper. Let the salad marinate for a few hours so the flavors can meld.

The longer you let this salad sit, the better it tastes.
