I happened to buy some tabouli at my local co-op and got, instead, something with all the expected ingredients *except* bulgar. But this turned out to be a delicious mistake. Behold, Mediterranean parsley salad—cool, incredibly refreshing, delicious.
Mediterranean Parsley Salad
1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
1 cucumber, very finely chopped
2-3 bunches parsley, part of the stems removed, washed and well-dried, very finely chopped
12–15 fresh mint leaves, stems removed, washed, well-dried, very finely chopped
4 green onions, white and green parts, very finely chopped
3–4 tbsp lemon juice
3–4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Very finely chop the vegetables, herbs, and green onions. Add everything to a mixing bowl, and add salt. Dress with the lemon juice and olive oil and toss again. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Serve with a side of pita bread.
