2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp organic flaxseed oil (or additional olive oil)

Unruly Options

1 cup soft cooked or canned garbanzo beans

1 cup diced English cucumber

1/2 to 1 cup additional chopped parsley

1 ripe tomato, diced

1/2 cup sliced red radishes

1/2 cup finely minced bell pepper (red, yellow, or green)

1/2 cup grated carrot

Method :
  1. Place the bulgur in a heatproof mixing bowl.
  2. Dissolve the salt in the boiling water and pour over the bulgur.
  3. Mix well, cover, and let sit for 30 minutes.
  4. Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, flaxseed oil and add to the bulgur.
  5. Stir in the parsley, scallions, spearmint, and garlic and mix well.
  6. Cover tightly and marinate the salad in the refrigerator for 4 to 12 hours.
  7. Toss or top with your choice for optional additions shortly before serving.

When options are added, this Tabouli comes into its own and is transformed from an auxiliary dish to the main attraction. Just add a light soup and warm pita bread to round out the meal.

Although this Middle Eastern grain salad doesn't take much time or effort to prepare, it must marinate in the refrigerator for several hours to properly soften the bulgur. It's worth the wait, however, as the long marinating time ensures each grain is infused with eye-popping flavor.
