What is Tabouleh?

Tabouleh (sometimes spelled tabouli) is a traditional middle eastern salad with parsley, mint, and grain. It is very refreshing and easy to make! Our friends taught us how to make it last summer, and it’s been a staple recipe in our family ever since! Traditionally it’s made with bulgar wheat, but I made it with barley for a different texture, and honestly I preferred it.

What do you need?

Barley

Parsley

Cucumbers

Tomatoes

Lemon

Olive Oil

Salt and pepper

So here’s the recipe and hope you enjoy!
