Tabbouleh (or Tabouli) is probably the most loved of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern salads. It is a simple salad of finely chopped vegetables and lots of fresh parsley, all tossed with lemon or lime juice and olive oil. Traditionally, Tabbouleh contains a little bulgur wheat or quinoa (for a gluten-free version), but you can still enjoy the same fresh flavors without it. The true star of Tabbouleh is the finely chopped parsley, which holds up well with the citrus dressing. It’s even better the next day, as the flavors marinate together. Although there are many different versions of Tabbouleh, this recipe is a favorite of Dr. Matthew at Genesis Health Solutions. This recipe yields 2-3 servings. Two cups cover your vegetable and fat for one meal.
