LEBANESE TABBOULEH



Lebanese Tabbouleh image

We think of tabbouleh as a bulgur salad with lots of parsley and mint. But real Lebanese tabbouleh is a lemony herb salad with a little bit of fine bulgur, an edible garden that you can scoop up with romaine lettuce heart leaves or simply eat with a fork.

Provided by Martha Rose Shulman

Categories     easy, quick, salads and dressings, appetizer

Time 30m

Yield 6 appetizer spread servings, 4 salad servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

1/4 cup fine bulgur wheat
1 small garlic clove, minced (optional)
Juice of 2 large lemons, to taste
3 cups chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (from 3 large bunches)
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
1/2 pound ripe tomatoes, very finely chopped
1 bunch scallions, finely chopped
Salt, preferably kosher salt, to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 romaine lettuce heart, leaves separated, washed and dried

Steps:

  • Place the bulgur in a bowl, and cover with water by 1/2 inch. Soak for 20 minutes, until slightly softened. Drain through a cheesecloth-lined strainer, and press the bulgur against the strainer to squeeze out excess water. Transfer to a large bowl, and toss with the garlic, lemon juice, parsley, mint, tomatoes, scallions and salt. Leave at room temperature or in the refrigerator for two to three hours, so that the bulgur can continue to absorb liquid and swell.
  • Add the olive oil, toss together, taste and adjust seasonings. Serve with lettuce leaves.

The result is a salad that is mealy, bland and stubbornly soggy. That’s because the bulgur sponges up all the juices from the tomatoes. Our solution …

Top Asked Questions

What is Lebanese tabbouleh?
We think of tabbouleh as a bulgur salad with lots of parsley and mint. But real Lebanese tabbouleh is a lemony herb salad with a little bit of fine bulgur, an edible garden that you can scoop up with romaine lettuce heart leaves or simply eat with a fork.
How to make tabbouleh with parsley?
Add the cooled bulgur, chopped fresh mint (if using) and green onion to the bowl of parsley. Strain off and discard the cucumber and tomato juice that has accumulated in the bottom of the bowl (this ensures that your tabbouleh isn’t too watery).
What is the best way to eat tabbouleh?
But everyone knows the best and messiest way to eat tabbouleh is to scoop it up in gem lettuce leaves and scoff it down in the most inelegant way possible. Wash the tomatoes, parsley and mint. Hold the bunch of parsley tightly between one hand and finely chop with a sharp knife. Slice the tomato into several rings, then finely chop each one.
Does tabbouleh have bulgur?
One thing that I’ve noticed though is that in the states, tabbouleh tends to have more bulgur than the traditional recipe calls for. The way we prepare it in Lebanon, the salad should be all about the parsley, with a hint of bulgur thrown in there.
