    Rita~'s Note:

    You can skip the preserved lemons(the salad will be just as good)! But be adventurous! Take time to finely cut all the vegies (confettied)! Serve as an appetizer, salad, side dish or main meal.

      We absolutely LOVED this! This is my first time making my own Tabouleh salad and it was as good as any I have had in restaurants. I did not have fresh mint and used only dried, which worked great. I also did not have preserved lemons and added 3 tbsp of extra lemon juice instead. I used chickpeas and feta as well and reduced the oil by about 1/2 which did not hurt the recipe either. I will be making this again and again for sure. Made for Photo Tag.

      Delish! The fresh herbs and preserved lemons really make this recipe and are really worth it. This is the best tabbouleh I have ever made. Thanks for posting, I would make this again for sure. Made for the October 08 veggie swap.
