Watercress Tabbouleh With Oranges and Almonds - Fast!

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Um Safia

Ready in just 35 minutes!?! I cut this recipe out of a magazine quite a few years back and it makes a really lovely, healthy dish pefect for summertime. Unlike most of my others, this Tabbouleh is by no means a traditional recipe. However, it is still delicious to eat and is very quick to prepare. Although I prefer to steam things such as cous cous and bulgar wheat, I understand that there are many who are not able or prefer not to...feel free to cook the bulgar how you wish

This is a perfect vegetarian, healthful salad and probably good for low-carb diets. Next time I will add another orange and another bunch of watercress. It was better the next day after marinating all. Used a couple of Habeneros, but next time will probably chop & toss in about 5! The salad is huge!
