A summer favorite in our house, this dish is quick and easy to prepare, it is served cold and the mint gives it a wonderfully refreshing flavor on a hot summer day.

You can prepare this dish using either couscous or bulgar. We prefer it with couscous. It is softer and almost melts in your mouth.

Ingredients:

1 bag instant whole wheat couscous
1 tomato
1 cucumber
1 scallion
4 sprigs of mint
2 stalks of parsley
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
salt
pepper

Prepare the couscous according to the instructions on the package. Set aside and allow to cool.

Peel the cucumbers and chop into small pieces. Chop the tomato into pieces approximately the same size. Dice the scallions, mint and parsley.

Add the vegetables and herbs to the couscous, stir in the oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Mix and serve.

Note: The recipe above is for traditional tabouli, my family prefers it without the parsley so experiment in your own home which way you prefer.

Enjoy!
