Tasty Tabbouleh


This tabbouleh is delicious!  My husband and I enjoyed it for dinner last night.  My older two children enjoyed it as a side dish to their meal.

There are so many great flavors and healthful foods in this dish! 

I did not have any pita chips on hand, since we had finished the bag a few days ago.  Therefore, I left those out and served the salad with some warmed, buttered Naan bread.


This recipe serves 2 or 3, if you are using it as a main dish.

1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon sumac
1 lemon, juiced
Salt and Pepper

Olive oil
3/4 cup bulgur
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cup diced cucumbers
1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
3 tablespoons minced fresh mint
3 green onions, tops and bottoms discarded and thinly sliced
2 or 3 ounces cubed feta
Handful pita chips, broken up

1. In a small bowl, combine all of the dressing ingredients.

2. Place about 1 T oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When hot, add the bulgur. Stir frequently and toast it for 1-2 minutes. To the bulgur, add 1 1/2 cups water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the water is evaporated and bulgur is tender. Fluff with a fork and set aside to cool.

3. In a mixing bowl, place cucumbers, tomatoes, parsley, mint, green onions, cubed feta. Add cooled bulgur.  Add half of the dressing and gently toss everything together. Add the rest of the dressing and pita chips. Toss again and serve.
