My best Tabbouleh

n. A Lebanese salad made with bulgur wheat and finely chopped scallions, tomatoes, mint, and parsley.

This is my version of this beautiful dish.

I boil the bulgur and mix it all together while it's still somewhat warm to get the best out of all the flavors.
To the bulgur I add finely chopped fresh tomatoes, pressed garlic, very finely chopped parsley (lots), lemon juice, finely chopped red onion or shallots, lots of cumin (spiskummin), some olive oil, salt and a little splash of tabasco if you feel like giving it a kick.

I would typically serve this dish with roasted chicken and a sauce made of yoghurt and mint. Or actually just as it is, a huge bowl of lovely comfort food.
