Every year in the summer I like to fix tabouli salad which is a Lebanese dish. This dish has a lot of raw vegetables in it. Nothing is cooked. My husband calls this chick food and totally avoids it. I call it healthy. I like to fix it when my father-in-law gives us a bunch of his homegrown tomatoes. I always use olive oil because it is the best for you and has no cholesterol. I buy the tabouly wheat at the grocery store near the fresh tomatoes. Broccoli is not in the original recipes but it blends in well and is packed with nutrients.
1 8 oz pkg tabouly wheat
2 1/2 cups finely chopped parsley
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1 small broccoli crown finely chopped
2 cups finely chopped tomatoes
1 tblsp finely chopped mint
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 to 3/4 cups lemon juice
3/4 cups expeller pressed olive oil
Rinse and drain wheat. Add all ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate for three to four hours.
