Tabbouleh is a classic dish that’s made with bulgur wheat, parsley, tomatoes, cucumbers, mint, lemon and olive oil. It’s very common in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern regions, and the ingredients can vary depending on the recipe. The herbs, bulgur, tomatoes, and cucumbers are staples, but sometimes people add feta cheese, pomegranate seeds, and more. This recipe is all about simplicity though, and the ingredients speak for themselves. It’s a very fresh dish and we hope you enjoy it.
