    EmmyDuckie's Note:

    Tabbouleh is a salad of herbs, vegetables, and bulgur wheat. It's easy to make, but does require a long chill time, so start early in the day to enjoy a hearty dinner full of vegetables. This is a vegetarian recipe, you can add chicken or other meat if you can't do dinner without it.

    1. 1
      Chop parsley, seed and dice cucumber, Add to a large mixing bowl or salad bowl.
    2. 2
      Heat olive oil a wok, or wide pan with high sides, over medium high heat. Add onions, garlic, and zucchini, cook until onions start to turn translucent.
    3. 3
      Add broth to wok, bring to a boil, add bulgur, remove from heat and allow to stand, covered for 7-10 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Drain any excess liquid, and add vinegar.
    4. 4
      Allow wheat mixture to cool slightly, mix with cucumber and parsley. Salt and pepper to taste. Chill for at least one hour, or overnight.
    5. 5
      Roughly chop tomatoes and stir into tabbouleh just before serving. Do not add tomatoes before chilling, as refrigeration makes tomatoes bland and mealy.
    6. 6
      Mix plain yogurt and black olive tapenade together. You should have a nice salad dressing consistency. If your yogurt is very thick, you may need to add a little water or milk.
    7. 7
      Tear romaine leaves into bite size, and divide onto plates. Drizzle with a little more oil and vinegar if desired. Place a generous scoop of tabbouleh on top of romaine, and top with yogurt/tapenade mixture.
