Easy and quick to prepare – the perfect salad for your next bbq evening with friends and family: a simple and delicious Tabouleh aka. Bulgur Salad.
1.8 oz. (50g) bulgur
3.4 fl. oz. (100ml) water
14 oz. (400g) tomatoes, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 small bunch of mint, chopped
5 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1. Add bulgur and water to a small pot and bring to a boil. As soon as you see bubbles, cover the pot and reduce the heat to a minimum and allow the bulgur to soak up the water for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool down.
2. Wash and dry the tomatoes and cut them into small cubes. Cut the cucumber in cubes as well. Peel and finely chop the onion. Wash, dry, and then chop the parsley and mint. Mix everything together with the bulgur in a large bowl.
3. Mix olive oil and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and add to the bowl with the salad – mix everything well and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Tabouleh is great as a side dish for grilling or simply served with some bread.
