Taboule Salad


This fresh summer salad is so easy to make.  I like to use whole wheat cous cous because it has 7g of fiber and 8g of protein per serving.  I buy mine at Trader Joe's but any brand is fine.  I love to eat this salad on it's own for lunch or serve it as a side dish with grilled chicken or lamb.

Mix 1 1/3 c cous cous with 2/3 c boiling water, 1/3 c olive oil and 1/3 c fresh lemon juice.
Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.

Fluff cous cous with a fork and add 1c chopped green onions, 1 c chopped parsley, 1 c chopped english cucumber, skin removed, 1 1/2 c chopped fresh tomatoes, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper.  Mix well and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Enjoy!

  1. Emily, your recipes are always
    so inspiring. Between this one and
    the last, I am ready to jump in the
    car to Trader Joe's and get what
    I need to make both ASAP. Hope
    you are enjoying a wonderful Mom's
    Day!
