Stuff your avocados with a light and refreshing vegan salad

Homemade tabbouleh salad is piled high into creamy avocado halves, creating this light, vegan lunch.

Tabbouleh is a parsley-based salad tossed with fresh mint, cooked bulgur, diced tomatoes and onions. There are many ways to make this dish, but I prefer it as close to authentic as possible. It's a very refreshing, healthy and light salad you will find on the menu in most Lebanese or Mediterranean restaurants. Since I have a serious love for avocados, I decided to fill them with this salad and serve it as lunch. This version is dairy free, but if you are a cheese eater, then try this recipe with a sprinkle of crumbled feta over the top.
