Yummy! Do you like taboulleh? I'd had it in restaurants but made it for the first time myself this weekend. It was a big hit and I think it will become a favorite summer salad around our house. What do you put in yours?

I use lemon juice, olive oil, cukes, zukes, yellow crookneck squash, red bell pepper, lots of parsley and mint, some salt and white pepper. and bulgar of course...

dice all the veggies real small, and it looks like confetti! so yummy!!

Here's what I put in mine:

bulgar wheat (of course)

green onion

cucumber

tomato

lemon juice

fresh parsley

fresh mint

salt

I didn't put any oil in it and it was so good. We eat it scooped with pieces of pita or just with a fork as a salad. Yum! Yum!

Some of the other veggie ideas sound good...I'll have to add more stuff next time. Keep the ideas/recipes coming!

Tabouli is great for summer and we have it a lot. I don't put in mint cos I don't like it much, but I use some minced scallions, chopped tomatoes and some chick peas. We also eat a lot if gazpacho in the summer.

Bulgar is wheat and in a way it is like couscous. My understanding is that it's cut a certain way to make it cook quick. You just let it sit in a pan after pouring boiling water over it and it's done. I found it in the bulk section at my grocery store.
