That Skinny Chick Can Bake


Home ยป 100+ Easy Healthy Recipes ยป Tabbouleh~


Living in Indianapolis, Memorial Day weekend is better known as Race Weekend…as the Indy 500 is always scheduled on Sunday.  After a night of tornadoes and then a couple chilly days, the holiday weekend called for intense heat.  Our Ina’s Garden assignment for the first week in June was Tabbouleh…and it seemed the perfect time to make this salad.

Ina’s recipes are no-fail…simple, with ingredients that we can all find in our local markets.  The picky family wouldn’t normally eat this sort of dish…Bill would ask what was in the salad…and both bulgur and mint would scare him off.  A simple vinaigrette with fresh lemon juice and olive oil, grape tomatoes, cucumber, scallions and parsley round out this delicious salad.  I knew I’d be eating it all myself…and, let me tell you, I did.  It was perfectly refreshing on a hot, humid Indiana day..and perfectly delicious as leftovers for the next couple days.

This recipe can be found on the Food Network web site.  The only tweak I’d suggest would be to decrease the salt just a wee bit…maybe starting with 2 1/2 teaspoons total vs the 3 1/2 in the recipe.

    (Sorry to hear about your tornados by the way! The weather this year is so strange…)

  6. Goodness, “a night of tornadoes” sounds very scary!

    I’ve never tasted Tabbouleh, and thanks to my coeliac disease, probably never will ๐Ÿ™ I guess something like quinoa could replace the wheat, but still, not authentic.

    Pity about the “Reach for a dream” thing with Ina Garten. It cooled a lot of people’s reactions to her, I think.

  7. That looks soo refreshing:-) Totally agree with u that Ina’s recipes are no fail. I just love her show Barefoot Contessa…Fool proof recipes I must say:-)

  8. Your dish looks great! Gah, I’m still kicking myself for not properly managing my time so I could’ve done this one from scratch. I’ll definitely be trying the scratch version soon, because yours looks extremely tasty! Glad you enjoyed it!

  9. Love me some Barefoot Contessa, and bulgur too! I’ve been facing similar pickiness issues, lately, cooking for my stepsisters…and have taken the same approach: finish it myself! Yum…

  10. I love tabbouleh, but can’t get Michael to eat it either. That means I don’t make it often, but I enjoy it when I get in the mood for it!!
