Tabouli Recipe

Step 1

Recipe by: McDougall Put the bulgur in a small mixing bowl. Pour the boiling water over the bulgur. Mix. Cover with a towel and let stand for 1 hour.

Step 2

After 1 hour the excess water should be removed. The easiest way to do this is to pour the bulgur and water into a fine mesh strainer. Let the water drain off, pressing the bulgur with your hands to remove as much of the excess water as possible.

Step 3

Place the drained bulgur in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Toss well to mix. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to blend flavors.

HELPFUL HINTS: This is a great make-ahead dish, easy to take to a pot-luck dinner or picnic. Try it stuffed in pita bread for a different sandwich idea. This recipe can be doubled or quadrupled easily for larger amounts. Keeps well in regrigerator.
