Author Notes: A classic Middle Eastern salad of fresh greens and bulghur - A Lebanese speciality
Tabbouleh is a classic healthy salad from Middle east region. lots of fresh greens,tomatoes,cucumber are added with soaked bulgar/bulghur. Traditionally little quantity of bulghur is added in lots of greens but you can also add more bulghur if you wish ,but I have used more greens and less bulghur. —maayeka
