- Toss rehydrated bulgar with remaining ingredients and remaining oile oil.

This was good. A bit to much mint for my taste. I like the balance of lemon and oil here as opposed to other versions that have up to 3/4 cup olive oil! UNNECESSARY! 1/2ed the recipe with no problem. Definitely let this sit in the fridge a while before serving. Mine was def better the next day :)
This is a very tasty tabbouleh! I used a little less mint, otherwise ade as directed. Thanks for posting this easy-to-make recipe! Made for the Top Favorites of 2009 event
I loved this recipe too! Only have used boxed version in the past and it's not nearly as nice. I also add a can of chick peas and it's sensational; also substituted the scallion with finely chopped red onion.
