  • Cracked Wheat Bulgur– 1 cup. see post for alternatives
  • Tomatoes- 2 cups diced. Cherry, Roma (plum) or grape tomatoes are good choices.
  • Parsley- 1 cup chopped. Flat leaf or Italian are good choices.
  • Mint Leaves- ¼ cup chopped.
  • Onion- ½ cup chopped. Scallions red onion, or green onion.


  • Prepare the bulgur by placing it in a bowl and pouring boiling water over it. Cover this and allow the bulgur to soak for at least a half hour. If you are using an alternative to bulgur please follow the directions on the package for preparation. Allow it to cool and then transfer it to a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients as described in the directions which follow.
  • Once the bulgur is tender and has absorbed most or all of the water you can transfer it to a larger bowl. You can drain or remove any remaining water without transferring it. Allow this to sit at room temperature for at least another half hour.
  • Give the bulgur a quick stir with a fork and then add the remaining ingredients to the bowl.
  • Toss the salad in the dressing well and add any additional seasonings as desired.
  • Serve the salad or cover it and allow it to set in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that the standard tabbouleh salad is made with soaked bulgur (cracked wheat), however, using a convenient already cooked bulgur is something that you can try. Also, Quinoa which you can also find already prepared quinoa , or couscous, which you can also find precooked couscous, in this salad are other popular options.
I also mentioned that the dressing for this consists of three ingredients.
To make the dressing you will need Olive oil (¼ cup) , salt (as desired), and lemon juice (¼ cup). Use a whisk to combine these ingredients for the salad.
