I bought a box mix of tabouli. Made it as stated, tasted hot, then cold.....but just did not care for it. I hate to waste food, especially in this economic crisis, so came up with this delightful dish. I served it hot as a side to recipe#169239, recipe#266753, along with recipe#160788. I made it with white rice that I was going to use the next day for fried rice, but next time I will try brown rice. Had some cold the next day for lunch, really was pleased that I had turned something that I did not like into something I would make again! Prep time does not include preparing the rice and tabouli. Don't be scared off be the carbs in this, they are the good kind!
