Couscous Tabouleh

January 8, 2010

Author Notes: A quick take on Mediterranean salad usefully made with Bulgar. I like the freshness of the herb, especially the mint, but the crunchiness of the veggies, especially if you can find baby\Parisian cucumbers and the star is of course the preserve lemons....Cordelia
