Tabbouleh is one of the most refreshing salads you can have. It can be served next to a main dish or as an appetizer.

This recipe is a variation of the traditional tabbouleh. I did not use bulgur or mint, but you can chose to add them if you please. The picture shows it next to some yummy grilled chicken and broccoli couscous. This is the perfect combination for a good hearty meal packed with lots of vitamin-C, protein, healthy carbs, and let’s not forget delicious flavor!
