From: MBrant1004<MBrant1004@...> Also yesterday I made a taboule salad for the first time. It turned out pretty good. I combined several recipes until I got the taste that I like.
For those of you who have not tried it, taboule is a Mediterranean dish, made from wheat grain and is a very refreshing and healthy salad. I used the coarser grain bulgur, #2. Here goes a posted version and my concoction.
After soaking bulgur, squeeze dry and place in a bowl with the mint, parsley (I did not use) , tomato, and green onion. Stir the lemon juice, salt (½ tsp) and garlic together and slowly beat in the oil. Stir in the pepper, cinnamon and allspice. Pour the dressing over the salad; toss and serve. Tastes better if you use fresh mint and allow to chill for 3 or 4 hours.
