Tabbouleh Salad

While in Toronto I ate at Tabülè, a delicious Middle Eastern restaurant where I enjoyed the best tabbouleh salad I had ever had. Ever since I have not been able to stop thinking about it. Such a delicious and fresh salad, perfect for summer. So I of course had to recreate it at home. The best part about this salad is that it actually tastes better the next day!


1/2 cup bulgur
2 - 3 cups chopped fresh parsley (stems removed)
1/2 mint chopped
2 tomatoes or 1 cup cherry tomatoes diced
1/2 an english cucumber diced
3 scallions thinly sliced
juice of 1 lemon and zest
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


Cook bulgur according to package directions. Cool. Add parsley, mint, tomatoes, cucumber and scallions and toss. Whisk together lemon, zest, olive oil and salt and pepper. Stir the dressing into the salad (you may feel you don't need full amount of dressing) until combined. Enjoy!

Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart.


  1. Your recipes always look so. Amazing. And I don't even particularly like cucumber!

    I Pink i Love You

    1. Thank you Melanie! I'm glad you like it, and gal meets glam is one of my faves :)

  3. This looks delicious! Must make this. I love tabbouleh but some deli ones are loaded with so much garlic and onion that I can't stand to eat them. This is perfect!!!
