How to make Tabbouleh Recipe (A Mediterranean Salad)

  1. To begin making the Tabbouleh Recipe, combine couscous along with 1 1/2 cups of boiling water in a large bowl.

  2. Cover the pan and allow the bulgur to rest and soak in the water for about an hour, until most of the water is absorbed. Drain any excess water.

  3. To the above soaked couscous, add in the oil, lemon juice, onions, parsley, tomatoes, and cucumber, along with the salt and pepper. Toss well to combine all the ingredients well.

  4. Cover and refrigerator for at least half an hour. This helps to bring out the flavors of the parsley and lemon well into the bulgur.
