Tabbouleh with couscous, mint and roasted pine nuts

Image

Tabbouleh is my favorite salad from all.  So many flavors mixed in it. I certainly miss the real ripe tomatoes from Bulgaria, where I can easily go and get as much as I want form my grandma`s garden. But I was lucky enough to find on our market very delicious local tomatoes and the result was almost the same 😉  Traditionally tabbouleh is made of bulgur, tomatoes, cucumbers, finely chopped parsley, mint, onion, and garlic seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Although there are various other variations such as using couscous instead of bulgur. And this is how I will present you the recipe today. The preparation is simple as you just need to  chop the ingredients and mix together in a serving bowl. I hope you will try it and enjoy it.

Ingredients:

– 4 tomatoes

– handful of parsley

– handful fresh mint

– one small red onion

– 1/2 cup couscous (or 1 cup if it is already cooked)

– the juice from two lemons

– 50 g roasted pine nuts

– olive oil and salt for seasoning
