Love, love , L-O-V-E this salad...used Sharon's directions in her recipe#204489 for sprouting the lentils and the results were just great (I mixed green/brown lentils and red and did discover after the fact {{my oops}} that the red lentils were "split" {dahl} style and will not sprout...they were still yummy :)...the green turned out very well...SO CUTE!!! :) ) **BE SURE TO MAKE EXTRA FOR MUNCHING!!!***- they are great by the handful! :)...annywaay; I mixed both styles in the salad for varying crunch/textural effect...used grape tomatoes, added a bit of garlic to the suggested mix...and happy-happy-happy got to use parsley from our garden (the first of our "crop" this year and our first garden in several years...can not wait to make it again with our own 'matoes' and 'cucs.'...:) ) I squeezed about two lemons and zest in and decides to use only 3 spoons of olive oil...let it sit for a few hours and just upon serving on a whim because it was there added some fresh lime juice as well...IT WAS SUPER YUMMY!!! ...and the leftovers are fabu as well...it ages really well as the flavors all mingle...THANKS SHARON for another GEM!!! :)

This is, for me, an excellent tabbouleh, with sprouts added in. I have a different technique for prepping my bulgar, but after that I just followed Sharon's proportions and directions, (I do leave out all but a splash of the evoo) using her fun-to-make lentil sprouts. I've been putting this on my hummus wraps that we sell at the cafe instead of a scoop of our old recipe tabbouleh and a sprinkle of alfalfa sprouts. Saves me a step, and tastes great! Thanks, Sharon!

Addictive is really the word for this salad. I made it exactly as written, except I used onions instead of scallions. If you want more sprouts in your diet, this is the way to go.
