Tabbouleh Salad

tabbouleh-saladTabbouleh salad – Middle-eastern recipe in 15 minutes.

Maybe the most of you know this traditional tabbouleh salad. So easy to make and it can be made in many variations. And this recipe is made with the more classic ingredients. Couscous (you can also you bulgur), tomatoes, cucumber, pomegranate seeds, red onions, parsley. Mix together with garlic, oil, salt and pepper.

My recipe is a twist of pomegranate seeds. Can easily be omitted, but I think it gives such a crunchy touch. But always remember taste with lemon, salt and pepper – and use all the ingredients you feel is the best.

Always use vegetabels and greens from the season and if you have any leftovers, they are perfect too.
