Tabouli is always popular around here. I think what people love about it is the chewy texture of the bulgar wheat.
2 cups coarse bulgar wheat
4 cups boiling water
handful sundried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup whole black olives
1/4 cup capers
1/2 a cucumber, diced
1/4 small bunch parsley, very finely diced (you can even use a food processor)
Boil the water, then add the wheat and let it stand until its soaked up all the water and you can easily squish a grain between your fingers. Chop up everything else and add to wheat. Tada! That’s it.
Two minute tahini dressing
whenever I need a salad dressing in a hurry I make this. So. Simple. And somehow elegant!
1/4 cup tahini
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 tspn hing
1/4 tspn salt
whatever herbs and spices you desire! Today I used dill tips, yesterday paprika and oregano. (I make A LOT of this stuff!)
With a whisk, mix the tahini and lemon juice. Then whisk in oil and then slowly, water. It should go white and creamy. And spices and you’re done!
Have a wonderful Wednesday evening 🙂
