Tabuleh, Taboule, Tabbule. Taboulé.

Honestly, I don’t know which is the right name for this plate.

I just know that I love it. I do believe that, as it comes from and african group, and its name might probably be taboulé because of its french speaker roots but im not a 100% sure of it.

Any way, as soon as you taste it, the name looses all the importance ;

A  bit of a lemony scent, a fresh flavour and consistency. Accompanied by some fresh crunchy salad leaves. The combination surrounds al your senses and make you think about anything but it.

Wonderful plate to eat in a picnic, to share, or to eat by your self on a nice and sunny day. For gluten eaters, it can be made with couscous, or for vegan ones with some delicious quinoa.

The ingredients are simple and the process as well. All you’ll need for it is:

Couscous, 1 cup.

Tomato 1 or 2, chopped.

Olive oil 2 tbsp

Raw onion 1/4 normal sized onion, chopped

Chives as much as you want.

Fresh chopped parsley 1/3 cup

Lemon juice 5 tbsp

Cucumber same quantity as tomato.

The main importance os this plate, is to combine well all of the ingredients so there won’t be any much stronger than the other one. To be honest, I don’t think you ought to follow precisely those quantities, because it will mostly depend on your choices and preferences. You may also add or quit some of the components if you wish to. Any way, once you have your ingredients ready, all you have to do, is to assemble them in a salad bowl, just combine and then enjoy!
