    Used different ingredients. i wonder how a quarter bunch of parsley and a quarter bunch of parsley would go instead? i'll let you know!  -  07 Dec 2008


    I was searching for a tabbouleh recipe to correspond with my Low GI Diet menu item, so I used this one, mixed with with a Chickpea Fallafel recipe and put in flat bread - I thought it was great! My husband wasn't thrilled...  -  29 Sep 2008


    I wish I could give this 6 stars. The cucumber was a nice change from tomato. The different fresh flavours of the herbs and ginger blend well but are distinctly different. I can't say enough good things about this salad. Everyone who tires it loves it.  -  29 Sep 2008
