Tabbouleh... A Salad With Bulgur

Tabbouleh... A Salad With Bulgur - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
TABBOULEH, IS A MIDDLE EASTERN SALAD MADE WITH BULGUR (DALIA) AS THE MAIN INGREDIENT. Yes, you have heard of bulgur in milk as porridge or in savoury form, cooked with veggies. But Tabbouleh is in the form of salad, so no cooking involved, to which veggies, herbs and dressings are added and done. Herbs like mint, parsley and Dressing Vinaigrette gives it an awesome taste. As far as nutritional value is concerned, I don’t think I need to say anything. Bulgur with loads of veggies…. what else can we ask for. Its very simple to make. Gets ready in just 10-15 minutes.

Recipe Notes

  1. If taking roasted bulgur then skip the first step.
  2. Ensure that after soaking, there is no water in the bowl. In case some water is left after soaking bulgur then keep it in a colander for few minutes.
  3. After soaking, bulgur will get double in volume, like 1 cup roasted Bulgur will become almost 2 cups. So take accordingly.
  4. Chop spring onion along with leaves.
  5. Chop cucumber and tomatoes very finely so as to go nicely with little granules of Bulgur.
  6. Parsely, mint as well spring onion leaves give very good taste to the salad, so use them liberally. In case, parsley is not available then use the only mint.(even I used only mint).
  7. In the water used for soaking bulgur, you can even put the lemon zest, mint and parsley stems for flavouring. Later, just remove these.
  8. Tastes best when cold.
 *VINAIGRETTE
4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Distilled White Vinegar
Just put both the ingredients in a small bottle.
Shake shake shake…
And your Vinaigrette is ready to go into your tabbouleh salad.
