I love tabouleh salad! It is so fresh, flavorful, and delicious. Tabouleh is a Levantine salad made of finely chopped ingredients and seasoned with simple ingredients (oil, lemon, seasoning). Some variations add lettuce or different grains, and this salad is famously served as part of a mezze in the Arab world. This is my spin on flavorful, traditional salad.

Ingredients for Tabouleh Salad

Ingredient Notes: 

Parsley: Parsley is not only super flavorful but it’s also a powerful natural diuretic and can help with bloating and blood pressure. Parsley is also loaded with vitamin K!

Mint: Mint can also be a great addition to this salad. It’s not only delicious but rich in nutrients and great for digestion. I love adding mint to water. It makes it so fresh. Bonus! It’s easy to grow in a pot on your patio or in your garden in the summer.
