A Refreshing Summer Dish
Tabbouleh salad is a staple in the Middle East. Fresh parsley and mint is tossed with crunchy cucumbers and diced tomatoes in a tangy lemon dressing. Replacing the traditional bulgur wheat with quinoa in this recipe makes this a gluten-free salad for all to enjoy.
This salad is so delicious. When you think of parsley, you usually think of it as a garnish for other dishes. Here we use it as the focus in the recipe rather than a decoration. Parsley lends a green grassy flavor to this salad and is actually good for you. The sweet tomatoes and crunchy cucumbers add the perfect texture while the lemon dressing give it a zing.
