Parsley usually sits on a plate as garnish, but in this traditional Middle Eastern dish, parsley is the star! The cracked whole-wheat grain bulgur ties the recipe together and adds some extra fiber and protein. Tabbouleh is also high in iron, manganese, and vitamins C and A, all important nutrients for the body, and the parsley, lemon, and mint each contain natural detoxing properties. Cutting back on the oil and salt used in more traditional recipes allows the bright, natural flavors to speak for themselves.
This salad is a nice foundation for a healthy lunch, or you can serve it as a satisfying snack with some fresh pita, as pictured. Learn how to make this tabbouleh salad after the break.
