    blucoat's Note:

    This was one of the most popular dishes at Nancy Mehagian's vegetarian restaurant on the island of Ibiza and she shared it in her book "Siren’s Feast: An Edible Odyssey". There are two secret (and essential) ingredients in this recipe - fine bulgur (which has the added benefit of cooking quickly) and tamari soy sauce. This really is the best tabbouleh you will ever make! Dish should be chilled before serving.

      This recipe totally lives up to its name. The best! I made it with Quinoa instead of bulgar wheat and it was FABULOUS. I just prepared one cup of dry organic Quinoa per the packaging instructions and proceeded as stated. I kept all of the veggies and other ingredients the same as I think Quinoa poofs up a bit more than the bulgar wheat. Plus I like lots of stuff in my salad. I eased up by just a bit on the olive oil and red wind vinegar but I don't think the whole amount would make much difference. Also, I used about 4 parts parsley to 1-2 parts mint which I got from my garden and is stronger than the stuff you buy in the store. I probably had at least a full 3/4 cup of parsley when chopped. To me, it is hard to determine how much "one bunch" is, so that's how I handled it. GREAT, GREAT recipe. Seriously the best Tabouleh Salad I have ever made.

      I made this recipe 3 times and after experimenting with a couple of additions, I love it. I followed the recipe exactly and then added 1/2 of an english cucumber, chopped, and 1 1/2 packets of raw sugar. This reduced the acidity a little. Shared with others who loved it also. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      A most excellent recipe! I cut the recipe in half. No rice wine vinegar - used balsamic instead... and added cucumbers. It is the perfect balance of bulgar to parsley ratio. A few years ago,I needed a last minute dish to take to a gathering. Looking at what I had on hand and following a whim, I stumbled across a fantastic combo of mixing tabouli with a container of classic tuna salad (not mayonaisy) from Whole Foods. The flavors came together perfectly and it was a huge hit! The whole room wanted the "recipe". Since then, when I make tabouli, I often add a can of Albacore tuna to the mix and Wa La(!) - an excellent meal that is appreciated by all. Top with a slice of avocado and you have heaven on a plate. Without fail, recipe requests follow the first bite. It just works. In-joy.
