Tabouli Salad

Tabouli Salad


  • 1/2 pound fine bulgur (cracked wheat, also known as burghul)
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 3 Tbs finely chopped fresh mint (or 2 Tbs crushed dried mint)
  • 2 firm tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cucumber, chopped (optional)
  • 1 light green sweet pepper, chopped (optional)
  • 4 Tbs olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon (at least 4 Tbs)
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped green olives, optional
  • 1 Tbs chopped lemon peel, optional


All the above quantities may be varied according to taste. Parsley should dominate. Soak bulgur in water for at least 1/2 an hour. It will expand. Drain and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Spread out to dry on a cloth. Mix bulgur with onions. Add the rest of the vegetables, finishing with the parsley, mint, olive oil, lemon juice. Mix well. Add salt and pepper.
