Visit the Middle Eastern kitchen with taboulleh – a light and fresh summer salad full of veggies and fresh herbs. Taboulleh makes the perfect side for summer barbecue nights or as part of a vegetarian meal with several green dishes.
Taboulleh can be made on a basis of bulgur, couscous or quinoa as you prefer, and there is plenty of opportunities to experiment using different fresh herbs. Classic recipes suggest using parsley, but also basil and mint taste delicious in the Middle Eastern dish.
