If you haven’t ever made your own tabbouleh you are missing out. Using the freshest ingredients guarantees the best flavour and texture. Burghul wheat is easy to find in the supermarket or health food shop and lasts in the cupboard for ages. It is worth having some on hand to whip up this delicious salad whenever you get the chance.
Serve with flat bread, baba ganoush and hommos for a vegetarian feast. It is also great with lamb chops or in a tortilla with grilled chicken. When we make it, we keep it in the fridge and add it as a side to dinner each evening. It does get soggy after a while so try and use it in a few days - or immediately if you really like it crisp.
