Western Tabbouleh

Western Tabbouleh 1
I’m sure most of you are wondering what the heck I’m talking about with the name of this recipe. But, chances are, this is the sort of tabbouleh you’ve come to know and love. Really though, this is not how tabbouleh is supposed to be made (my mother will attest to that). Authentic tabbouleh is a predominantly parsley salad with some bulgur wheat sprinkled in (i.e. Marushka’s Tabbouleh).
