Simple Saturday – Tabbouleh

Hello foodie friends! Martha here bringing you a simple Mediterranean salad this week. Have you ever had Tabbouleh Salad? It’s definitely a must try and it’s very easy to make. It’s a perfect light, cool, flavorful salad in the warm summer months.

Just combine about 2 cups diced tomatoes, 2 cups seeded and diced cucumber, 1 cup chopped parsley, 1/2 cup cooked bulgar wheat, (chopped onion is common in this salad but optional). Squeeze the juice of 1-2 lemons over veggies, add salt and pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients together, cover and refrigerate for several hours.

This is a great salad to serve with falafel or wonderful served with hummus and pita for a nice light meal. I always feel healthy and refreshed after eating this, it’s one of my favorites. Give it a try!

Don’t forget to visit me at my food blog Seaside Simplicity and every Monday at The Motivation Station.

Have a great weekend, and please don’t forget to observe the real meaning of Memorial Day this weekend!


I am from lebanon. This dish is like a national symbol along with hummos and many others. But the way we do it is very different, and you should try it.

2 cups parsley (finely chopped)
1 cup diced tomatoes
a finely diced small onion
1 tablespoon dry bulgar wheat (or a bit more according to taste)
1 lemon juiced
3 tablespoons olive oil (or more according to taste)
a little salt, and a little allspice.
Mix together and leave for around 20-30 minutes and enjoy!


Alexis used to love a dish of tabbouleh and hummus but I never knew what was in it or how to make it. I need to try this for her and make some hummus.
