Tabouleh is a Lebanese salad made of parsley, mint, tomatoes, bulgur, onion, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper, and Tabouleh is always served as a part of a meze in the Arab world.
Tabouleh is a very refreshing and aromatic salad with a tangy taste of lemon. You can vary the amount of the ingredients but the taste of lemon should always be predominant. In this version, I have added cucumber and green pepper for an extra crunch.
The salad should be served chilled. I find that the longer the salad stays in the fridge, the better but no more than a couple of hours. Otherwise the vegetables will turn soft. But even though you leave it longer than that, it still tastes beautiful. I like to make an extra large portion and eat it the day after.
Eat the salad as part of a meze, as a vegetarian dish or as a side dish for lamb or chicken.
