Tabbouleh Salad (Parsley Salad)
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.
