Tabouli salad is a classic Levantine dish (also spelled tabbouleh and tabouleh), a vegetarian salad that is loaded with flavor and texture. From crisp cucumber, sweet tomatoes, briny olives and bright parsley, every bite is a little different. Bulgur wheat makes the salad hearty enough to make it a main dish and I love to add salty creamy feta to make the salad even better.

You can make it a day ahead, refrigerate it, and when you take it out the next day and fluff it with a fork, it will still be light and delicious. I use it as a base for a variety of salads or make it alone with a swirl of olive oil and a pinch of salt as a simple side dish….
