Tabbouleh salad (cracked wheat salad)

Updated: 2021-09-14

Tired of your usual salad? Try this cracked wheat salad with fresh herbs, tomatoes and cucumbers.

Serves 8
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup bulgur (cracked wheat), rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup diced, seeded tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions or green onions
  • 1 cup finely diced cucumber
  • 8 olives, green or black, sliced
  • 1 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint or basil, optional
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed, optional
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat and add the bulgur. Cover and let stand until the bulgur is tender and the liquid is completely absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.

In a large bowl, add the bulgur and the remaining ingredients. Toss gently just until the ingredients are evenly distributed. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend. Serve chilled.
