Tabbouleh is a popular Middle Eastern salad that is usually served as a part of a Mezze. The addition of chargrilled eggplant adds a distinct smoky flavour to the salad. You can adjust the proportion of ingredients according to your taste and availability. For a gluten free version, the bulgur or cracked wheat can be substituted by cracked millets, corn or Quinoa. 

Serve this refreshing, hearty salad with Pita Bread and Beetroot Hummus as a party or a light summer meal. You can serve the salad in small fresh lettuce ‘cups’ for added crunch.
