Cool and Healthy Tabouleh Salad

Cool and Healthy Tabouleh Salad

Tabouleh is a classic Middle Eastern salad served cold that’s so flavorful and good for you. Great on its own, or served with homemade pita bread and hummus to make a perfect summertime meal.

Healthy Tabouleh Salad


1 cup bulgur wheat*
1 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Juice of 2 fresh lemons
1/4 cup olive oil
1 small clove garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup sliced scallions
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
1 1/2 cups chopped cucumbers
1 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
3/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


Place the bulgur wheat in a large bowl and add the boiling water. Let it sit for 30 minutes or until all of the water is absorbed. Let cool completely.

While the bulgur is soaking, whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Add in the minced garlic and set aside.
When the bulgur is ready, add the scallions, tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley, and fresh mint. Top with the dressing and toss. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Chill for 1 hour. Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Salad will keep for 2 days.

Note: You can add a can of drained chickpeas if you want to add more protein. You can also substitute quinoa for the bulgur wheat to make the salad gluten-free.

*Bulgur wheat is available in the rice and grains section of your supermarket.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
