My mom's tabouli recipe that has been tweaked - the tabouli was a year long work in progress! The first picture is of the recipe prior to the major tweak - and it wasn't my favorite. Now, with the improved recipe, I could literally live off this stuff - especially when I pare it with Mom's Spanakopita or spread it in my My Favorite Sandwich - Middle Eastern Style!

So fresh and flavourful and I can't believe how easy this is to make! A great way to use up my bumper crop of lemons & tomatoes. Thanks Bella!

I needed to use up cucumber and tomatoes so I picked this recipe and it turned out wonderful!! I didn't have any green onion and cut the salad in half so used alot less oil and lemon juice. We'll be eating on this salad all weekend. Thanks!
