This tabbouleh recipe is closest to the Lebanese variation as it contains more fresh herbs than bulghur, making it closer to a salad than a grain dish. Personally, I think that fresh parsley and mint has a bit more flavor than boring old bulghur wheat, anyway.

This would be a wonderful accompaniment to stuffed cabbage rolls, chicken biryani, or, of course, Chicken Shawarma.

    1. Do you grow your own mint? What variety of mint do you suggest for the Greek dishes and salads. I want to buy a mint plant to grow in a container and start using it in recipes.

      • Hi Patti,

        I don’t grow my own mint, but Spearmint is the most common variety of mint found in food markets and it is also the most commonly used mint in Greek cooking. So, I suggest you get a Spearmint plant.

    3. I want to try this tonight- but could you be more specific on what a “bunch” of mint/parsley is? Is it one spring?

      • Hi, Briana – a standard bunch of parsley would be about a cup and a half of chopped leaves. Mint is usually bundled in smaller bunches, so about 1/4 cup chopped mint leaves 🙂
