Tabbouleh Salad (Parsley Salad)

By , On , In Entrees, Recipes, Salads, All Recipes

Tabbouleh is a healthy, rich and super-green salad with pure Lebanese origins that is known for its spicy-tangy kick.  In traditional Lebanese cuisine this salad is made with burgur- cracked wheat.

And on the topic of bulgur, if you are allergic to gluten or simply want a gluten-free version, try substituting the bulgur with Quinoa. We haven’t tried it yet, however I heard from a few folks that it’s a good gluten substitute.


  •  2 bunches fresh Italian parsley or fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 4 large tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 3 lemons, juice of (Freshly Squeeze)
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup bulgur (Also know as cracked wheat)
  • 1 cup water, boiled
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • Add one cup of boiled water and one cup bulgur in a small bowl and mix. Place a tea towel over the bowl so the steam is unable to escape. Set aside until cool.
  • Finely chop the parsley and tomatoes and place them into your separate large salad bowl.
  • Juice all the fresh lemons and pour it over the salad mixture. Add olive oil, black pepper and salt in the salad mixture. Mix well.
  • Place over the cool bulgur and mix well.
  • Serve.
  • Refrigerate any left overs for about 2-3 days.

Enjoy! 🙂
