    Mirj's Note:

    Tabbouleh is one of my favorite salads, we eat it all summer long. Some times I use couscous instead of the cracked wheat normally called for in tabbouleh, it makes for a lighter salad. Normally, tabbouleh has mint in it, but I'm not so crazy about the addition, so I've made it optional. This was created for RSC Summer 2005.

      Great, but even better with about 1/2 tsp lemon pepper.

      A lovely that keeps well in the lunchbox. I skipped on the olive oil all together as I wanted to keep the calories right down...I prefer my couscous this way. I also subbed pine nuts for the pistachios.

      There is often a tub of home made tabbouleh to be found in my fridge and I’m always trying new versions of it. This one has got to be one of the best, correction - the best, I have tasted in ages. I used barley couscous which is lovely and creamy, and together with sweet red pepper, sharp capers and crunchy pistachios the result was a wonderful fusion of taste and texture. Unusually for me, I think it may be a long time before I look for another tabbouleh recipe. This one is just sooo delicious.
