Red Wine Tabbouleh
This fresh, delightful, and tasty salad is a real treat for the tastebuds! Tabbouleh is a simple Mediterranean salad of fresh herbs, bulgar, and parsley being the number 1 ingredient. It’s dotted with diced cucumber and tomato, all tossed with lemon juice and the Red Wine Vinaigrette.
We are partial to the salad being all about the parsley, with a hint of bulgur thrown in there. The idea is to have a little bulgur with the salad, not a little salad with your bulgur.
The true star is the very finely chopped parsley--lots of it! Tabbouleh is basically a delicious parsley salad. Parsley holds well against the citrus dressing, so you may find that salad is even better the next day.
