Tabbouleh is a Middle Eastern herbal salad with vegetables and a touch of spices. It is a fresh salad with garden cucumbers, tomatoes, and onion flavored generously with parsley. Mixing grains and seeds add more substance to this salad. A dressing of lemon and olive oil completes the mix of flavors. This is a cool, refreshing salad for Summer. —Sri Devi
