This Tabbouleh salad is healthy and vibrant, and comes together very easily. It makes for a tasty light lunch or a flavorful side salad that’s part of a larger meal.

Our oldest daughter is some kind of crazy for lamb dishes, especially shawarma (or gyros), with lamb meat hot and freshly carved from the spit. Hatti fell in love with a number of authentic Middle Eastern dishes while we stayed with my sister’s family in Cairo, Egypt a number of years ago. That trip left an impression on her, and I so enjoy watching her adventurous spirit at the table.
Whenever we visit a Middle Eastern restaurant, usually with prompting from our daughter, I can’t resist ordering a side of tabbouleh. This dish takes me back to Egypt and walking the tightly packed streets of the Khan el-Khalili, a major souk (open-air market) in Cairo. Every time I eat this salad, I ask myself why I never create it at home. Well I’m happy to say that I finally got around to making that happen. This Tabbouleh salad is fresh and flavorful, a vibrant dish to add to most any meal.
