    This Fruited Tabbouleh with Walnuts and Feta is my take on the Middle Eastern classic dish. Tabbouleh is a classic Middle Eastern salad which is usually made of finely chopped parsley, tomatoes, mint, onion, olive oil and lemon juice. In my take on tabbouleh though, I add some extra ingredients like dried cranberries, walnuts and feta cheese.

    I start by rehydrating the bulgur which takes about an hour. Once the bulgur is fluffy, I stir in the orange juice, oil, cucumber, onion, cranberries, parsley, mint, orange peel and salt. Then I refrigerate it for a few hours. Right before serving, I stir in some orange chunks and sprinkle feta cheese and walnuts on top. Yum!
