The Best Tabouli Salad

This is the best Tabouli recipe around. Finely chopped parsley, tomato, and green onions, mixed with the best ever dressing: lemon juice, olive oil, some BBQ sauce and hot sauce! Trust me - once you try it, you'll be making it over and over again

Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 5

Ingredients

  • 3 Parsley bunches
  • 5 green onions
  • 1 large tomato or 2 small ones
  • ½ cup fine bulgur wheat
  • ½ cup water

For the Dressing:

  • Juice of 3 lemons about ½ cup
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon hot sauce per preference
  • 1.5 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Instructions

  • Wash the fine bulgur wheat and soak in ½ cup of water for about 10 minutes
  • Wash and dry all vegetables
  • Chop the parsley very finely, along with the green onions and tomato and place in a mixing bowl
  • Mix all the dressing ingredients together well. Taste and adjust per preference
  • Mix the salad with the dressing well. Cover and cool in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving, for best results

Notes

  • Hand chopping the parsley yields the best results. You may use a food processor but the parsley will release extra liquid and wilt. Still possible and much quicker - but not the best tabouli!
