Recipe Ingredients for lebanese tabbouleh salad

1/4 cup bulgur wheat
1 garlic clove, minced (optional)
2 lemons, juiced, to taste
3 cups chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (from 3 large bunches)
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
1/2 pound ripe tomatoes, very finely chopped
1 cup scallions, finely chopped
1 Salt, preferably kosher salt, to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 cups romaine lettuce, leaves separated, washed and dried

Recipe Directions for lebanese tabbouleh salad

  1. Place the bulgur in a bowl, and cover with water by 1/2 inch. Soak for 20 minutes, until slightly softened. Drain through a cheesecloth-lined strainer, and press the bulgur against the strainer to squeeze out excess water. Transfer to a large bowl, and toss with the garlic, lemon juice, parsley, mint, tomatoes, scallions and salt. Leave at room temperature or in the refrigerator for two to three hours, so that the bulgur can continue to absorb liquid and swell.

  2. Add the olive oil, toss together, taste and adjust seasonings. Serve with lettuce leaves.
