Gluten Free Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad
This Gluten Free Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad is my take on the Middle Eastern classic dish. Tabbouleh is a salad made of finely chopped parsley, tomatoes, mint, onion, olive oil and lemon juice. Classic tabbouleh is made with bulgur wheat, but in my recipe I use quinoa instead of the bulgur.
Quinoa is a high protein, super healthy ancient grain. To make my tabbouleh, I combine cooked quinoa with chopped parsley, mint, tomato, cucumber and onion in a large salad bowl. I then dress this with a lemon and olive oil dressing. The result is a fresh tasting healthy salad.
