Tabbouleh Salad | Magic from the Med |

Tabbouleh Salad

We love Tabbouleh Salad. Most countries that border the Mediterranean sea claim a version of this versatile salad. Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Morocco and even Jordan. This version we picked up on a visit to the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv. Every mouthful reminds me of the stall packed with huge bunches of mint, parsley and spring onions. A real feast for the eyes. Tabbouleh Salad is quick and easy to make and can be on the table in under 20 minutes. Perfect with a summer barbecue with grilled meats or fish. Packed with fresh herbs, this is a really healthy salad for the entire family.

To be honest, as this is such a relaxed meal serve what you really like – it doesn’t matter. What does matter is enjoying yourself! We served Troupis Fteri Moschofilero 2017. The dream climate and growing conditions preserve the unbelievable aromas of the noble Moschofilero grape that is native to Mantinia… and Yiannis’ vineyard. The result is a local wine of legendary fragrance. Aromas of intense lemony flowers fill your nose, while the crisp dry wine is full of pomegranate and citrus flavors – yum. Available from Naked Wines.
