Last updated Jul 15, 2023

Tabbouleh salad is perfect as a dish on its own or as a side dish to fish tagine, falafel, or any Mediterranean dish for that matter. It is light and refreshing, but very flavorful. It is also a great way to use up that parsley that’s been sitting in the back of the fridge, or grains, mainly bulgur, from the pantry.

Unlike most other salads, tabbouleh refrigerates very well, for up to 3-4 days.
