ISO Tabbouleh

My neighbor makes what I think is an Italian dish called Taboli (sp?) I think it has either couscous or barley in it. I have asked her for the recipe twice, but she hasn't given it to me. Anyone know of one?

Tabouli is a middle eastern and african food. It's Bulgar wheat and can have flavourings added.

Tabouleh actually a Lebanese dish made with bulgur wheat. I've eaten it, but have never made it. I searched and found several recipes, one of which I will post here.

Thank you so much! I don't think I have any bulgar wheat in the house-do you think barley or couscous would taste ok?

Yes it would taste very good. It would not be tabouli though, but don't let that stop you. It can still be delicious.

I eat this stuff pretty regularly. It is very healthy and a low calorie food. You can eat lots of it and not worry about throwing your diet off if you happen to keep one. I usually keep a batch made for in between meal snacks. Tasty, zesty and lots of variations. I usually dice up a tomato and a cucumber for crunch.

Healthy, yes. Low calorie...well that all depends on how much extra-virgin olive oil it is swimming in. Good tabouli has plenty of it, with lots of lemon juice to balance it out.

Very true... I have seen some recipies that use a 1/4 to a half cup, and some that uses only 2 tblsp. Thanks for pointing that out.

you could leave out the coriander and put a bit less cracked wheat in for that less wheat flavour goodness. (i dont really like coriander that much)

i love this salad, ive made it, my my mum/cousins/aunties/uncles make it, its great with some kind of red fish (samon or trout are the only two i know)

its also really nice if you wrap it in a lettuce leaf by the mouthful

EDIT: you could also substitute the coriander for some spring onions, or some capsicum (capsicum is a sweet chilli for all those americans who dont know, and anyone else for that matter) if you dont have any coriander or just like capsicum so much
