​The bright flavor and herbiness of parsley is too often set aside as a plate garnish.  Tabbouleh is a fresh, lemony recipe that highlights the taste of parsley rather than just the look of it.


Quantity Unit Name Link Alternatives
½ cup bulgur wheat
2 cups fresh parsley, minced
1 cup fresh mint, minced
1 small red onion, finely chopped
