Classic Tabbouleh

Sometimes basic is best so that's what we did with this tabbouleh recipe. Just bulgur, fresh veggies, fresh herbs, oil, and lemon juice. Keep it traditional by serving cold with a crisp bread like lavosh.

Classic Tabbouleh

Directions

  1. Place bulgur in a colander; rinse with cold water. In a large bowl combine bulgur and the next four ingredients (through mint).
  2. For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine water, oil, lemon juice, and salt. Cover and shake well. Drizzle dressing over bulgur mixture; toss to coat. Cover and chill 4 to 24 hours. Stir tomato into bulgur mixture just before serving. Serve in a lettuce-lined bowl and, if desired, with lemon slices.

From the Test Kitchen

Wheat Berry Tabbouleh:

Prepare as directed except omit bulgur. In a large bowl combine 2 2/3 cups cooked wheat berries*, tomato, cucumber, parsley, green onions, and mint. Prepare dressing as directed except omit the 2 Tbsp. water. Serve immediately or chill up to 4 hours. Serve in a lettuce-lined bowl and, if desired, with lemon slices.

*Note

To cook wheat berries, bring one 14.5-oz. can vegetable or chicken broth and 1/4 cup water to boiling. Add 1 cup wheat berries. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 45 to 60 minutes or until tender; drain. Cover and chill up to 3 days.

Tabbouleh wrap or pita:

To fill an 8-inch flour tortilla for a wrap, place several lettuce leaves in the center of the tortilla. Using a slotted spoon, top lettuce with 1/2 cup of the tabbouleh mixture. Fold bottom of tortilla half way over the tabbouleh. Fold over sides and secure with a toothpick, forming a pocket. Or line pita bread halves with lettuce leaves. Place 1/2 cup of the tabbouleh mixture into the pocket of each bread half.
