Now, this might sound alarming, but i used to hate tabboule, but before you jump and say how could you!! let me just explain by saying that I used to order it from takeaway shops which I know dont make it the way its supposed to.. that turned me off making tabbouleh all together, until we had a big bunch of parsley lying around that my mum insisted I use up before it spoils, and judging by the to parsley leaves, it needed to be used right away, so i went ahead and made tabboule and to my amazement, it was just... beautiful isnt the word to describe it. now i know why this simple salad is so famous. heres MY recipe...
1 bunch of parsley finey chopped
4 ripe tomatoes finely diced
3 tablespoons of fine burghul soaked in water for 15 minutes
1/2 yellow onion finely diced
1 cup of finely diced mint
juice of one juicy lemon
teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoons of olive oil.
put all ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands. serve in a large bowl and decorate with lettuce leaves.
