Greek Tabouleh Salad

OK... now this is going to sound strange, but I asked my dog, Mollie Sue, (my little black pug) if I might use some of her green beans to fix a nice lunch.
You see, I have been buying her green beans and cooking them and then putting them in the fridge for when she wants a snack/treat.
These are actually cheaper than dog treats and much healthier for her... and not only that, but she loves them! I mean... REALLY loves them!!
So we made a deal! If I gave her a few more beans, then I could use a few for lunch. What a good dog she is!

Once again I am cooking for one and preparing vegetarian fare.

This starts with a package of NEAR EAST Tabouleh Wheat Salad.
A handful of CHERRY TOMATOES, halved or quartered
1 c. FETA CHEESE, crumbled
3/4 c. ENGLISH CUCUMBER, chopped
1/4 c. chopped BASIL (optional)
1/4 c. RED ONION, diced

(I served this with cooked, cold green beans and a boiled egg quartered.)

Combine wheat and contents of Spice Sack (from package)in a bowl.
Stir in 1 c. boiling water (as directed on package).
Cover and let stand for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Stir in tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil, cheese, cucumber, basil, and onion.
Cover and chill one hour or overnight.

Variations: You might also add shredded carrot, chopped red or green bell pepper, or black olives.

Easy... inexpensive... and delicious!

Looks delicious! I used to make tabouleh from scratch with bulgar and fresh chopped veggies and with the addition of a dash of tamari. Thanks for the reminder of how good it is!

Looks yummy. One of my staple side dishes, and one that often goes to potlucks, where it is adored, is Quinoa tabouleh. Don't know if you've ever used quinoa,but I first picked it up on Costco after having it in one of Chef Garces' restaurants in Philadelphia. It's very healthful and works well for tabouleh. I cook it in broth rather than water, for more flavor. I never put mint in tabouleh - don't like it. Use lots of parsley.
