There are bountiful fresh and healthy food products readily available now in our grocery stores. It’s easy to put together a healthy lunch in minutes with all of the incredible choices. Tabouli is one of my favorites. It is a super nutritious salad that is tasty and offers texture and color as well. Tabouli is a salad composed mainly of parsley, bulgur, tomato, cucumber, onion, lemon juice and olive oil. It is delicious on its own as a side salad, but it is also a very versatile salad that can be tuned into a meal by adding a few select ingredients.
Here are some of they ways I change it up:
- add a can of tuna
- add some brown rice or quinoa and top with a poached or fried egg
- add some cubed rotisserie chicken
- add some lentils and or toasted pine nuts
- add a half a cup of Tabouli to a chefs salad
The ideas are endless. Let me know how you enjoy your Tabouli!!
