This meal was inspired by the contents of my CSA: parsley, cucumbers, leeks, and garlic scapes. I made a quick trip to the market to supplement and couldn't resist the fresh corn and heirloom cherry tomatoes. Top it off with a healthy addiction to Mediterranean cuisine, and these tacos were born. The tabbouleh salad could truly stand on its own—it's crunchy and sweet, and fresh parsley and mint add a great punch of flavor—but I piled it all in a tortilla with some creamy dressing because, why not? —Alexa Arnold
Test Kitchen Notes
YUM! I absolutely loved this salad. As a fan of wheatberries, I was pretty sure I would like it—and it delivered a lot of really great flavor. The feta adds a great bite and the mustard and tahini really give it that Middle Eastern flair. The salad is great in the tacos, but would stand on its own or on top of greens! —Anna Francese Gass
For the tacos:
small tortillas (I prefer flour, but corn works here too)
fresh parsley, chopped
fresh mint, chopped
cherry tomatoes, halved
cucumber, cored and sliced
cooked wheat berries (or bulgar, which is traditionally used in tabbouleh)
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
For the dressing
Juice of 1 lemon
finely chopped garlic (I used garlic scapes)
finely chopped leeks
