Tabbouleh is a cold salad made with bulgur, lots of parsley, tomatoes and mint, and then marinated in a lemony olive oil dressing. If you can make this delicious tabbouleh salad recipe the day before, do so. It helps the flavors meld and become even more zesty. This healthy salad recipe is a winning side dish (and part of a nutritious Mediterranean diet).
