As I was writing up this post, only then did I noticed the quantity required for the parsley was actually TEN (10) cups, not one (1) cup...
No wonder my salad looked nothing like the tabbouleh in a couple of middle eastern cookbooks (yes, David did not have a picture to go with his recipe). But nevertheless, both of us enjoyed it. And I also used couscous instead of bulgur wheat. I eye-balled the quantities to make enough for two pax.
I liked the prepping for the tomato for this dish, cutting it into halves, squeezed out the seeds, diced and drained before use.
Ps: Since we both enjoyed this light and refreshing salad, I went and got a box of bulgur wheat!
Above was my portion.
Hubby had a hard boiled egg to complete his lunch, with extra dressing over the egg.
