This is a fairly simple recipe for this sweet, chewy Mediterranean salad. Everyone who makes it has a different variation.


1/4 cup bulgur
1 bunch fresh parsley (preferably flat leaf), finely chopped
1/2 bunch fresh mint. Pick leaves only, finely chopped
1 large diced tomato
1 small chopped onion
1 lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
½ tsp salt, or to taste
½ tsp pepper, or to taste


Place the bulgur in the lemon juice and set aside for 15 minutes.

When the bulgur is soft, mix all the ingredients: bulgur, parsley, mint, tomato, onion. lemon juice, salt and peper. Add olive oil last, and toss well. You may need to add lemon juice if needed.

Notes, tips, and variations

Tabouli is delicious when fresh. The flavor deteriorates if you allow it to sit for some time.
