To begin, I used a box of Far East Taboule Wheat Salad Mix. I prepared the package ingredients according to the directions on the package, listed under #1.
After it had been refrigerated for 30 minutes, I added 1 cup chopped fresh tomato, 2 tbsp lemon juice (1 tbsp is listed but I wanted it more tart), 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber (seeded), 2 tbsp finely chopped green onions and 1/3 cup freshly chopped parsley. That's it!
For the past 20 years I have been making tabouli. Most of my family members like it, as Clint said, he loved the tangy taste. Besides being healthy, I find it light and refreshing. You can't go wrong no matter what you add or leave out, there are plenty of suggestions on the box or at their website.
