Refreshing Tabbouleh Salad

Healthy Fact of the Day

Tabbouleh is a traditional Lebanese dish that has gained popularity worldwide. The key to an authentic tabbouleh is using a high proportion of fresh herbs, particularly parsley, in relation to the bulgur wheat. This results in a bright, refreshing salad bursting with flavor and nutrition.



  • 1 cup fine bulgur wheat
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 4 cups fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Romaine lettuce leaves for serving
  • Lemon wedges for garnish



  1. In a large bowl, pour the boiling water over the bulgur wheat. Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and let it sit for 30 minutes, or until the bulgur has absorbed the water and is tender.
  2. Fluff the cooked bulgur with a fork and let it cool to room temperature.
  3. In another large bowl, combine the finely chopped parsley, mint, halved cherry tomatoes, and chopped red onion.
  4. Add the cooled bulgur wheat to the herb and vegetable mixture, and toss gently to combine.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper to make the dressing.
  6. Pour the dressing over the tabbouleh salad and toss well to coat the ingredients evenly.
  7. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the tabbouleh for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  8. Serve the refreshing tabbouleh salad chilled, scooped onto romaine lettuce leaves, and garnished with lemon wedges.
