A delightful salad from North Africa. Oil-cured black olives can also be added to this salad just before serving, if you like.

Delicious! The one bunch spring onions came out to 5 for me, and that just enough. In the spirit of tabbouleh, I also nearly a cup of minced parsely which really went well with all the other flavours. Another great one, Mirj.
