Winter Tabbouleh December 5, 2013
Tabbouleh is a Middle Eastern dish, traditionally made with bulgar, tomatoes, cucumber, chopped parsley and mint, onions, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Often times, tabbouleh is quite heavy on the parsley and mint (especially in Lebanon), but it is important to note that there are quite a few variations on this dish, and if you prepare it from scratch, you have the authority to make it whichever way you please. I prefer the ratio of parsley and couscous 1:4. Just enough parsley to provide a wonderful citrusy flavor and some beautiful color, but not so much that it becomes overpowering or the main focus of the dish.
