Cooking with Parsley: Tabbouleh
<em>Serves 2 to 4</em>
Cold tabbouleh, green with parsley, is as common in the Near East as couscous is in North Africa. Both make great summer dishes.</p>
<p>• 1 ¼ cups medium bulgur<br />
• 1 large tomato, chopped<br />
• 3 to 4 chopped scallions<br />
• Juice of ½ to 1 lemon<br />
</sup> to <sup>
</sup> cup minced parsley<br />
• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil<br />
• ¼ teaspoon salt<br />
• Freshly ground black pepper to taste</p>
<p>1. Place the couscous in a glass or pottery bowl and fill it with water. Soak the bulgur 30 minutes and immediately drain off all the water.</p>
<p>2. Add the remaining ingredients to the tabbouleh and mix gently with a fork. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the grain absorb the dressing before serving.</p>
