based on the one from poorgirleatswell, tweaked for my tastes. i'm told it's quite mild for a tabbouleh but i've never had any others. i thought it was very flavorful and a testament to what can be done with very simple food. this is super cheep and very healthy. if you're not used to strongly flavored middle-eastern food you may want to start with less herbs and lemon juice and see how you like it. could easily be made vegan without the feta or with a soy type. would be an interesting addition to a BBQ
