Tabouleh meets a typical British salad for this simple, tasty and filling salad.

Tabouleh Style Salad

This quick and easy recipe is a combination of a traditional Tabouleh style salad with your classic British salad.

I am obsessed with Middle Eastern cuisine, and any unusual salads at the moment.

Mainly because the flavours are so fresh and vibrant, but really simple too.

Notes on the Recipe (click to view)

Ingredients

  • 60g buckwheat
  • 150ml hot water
  • 1 teaspoon bouillon
  • 6 cherry tomatoes on the vine or 3 small tomatoes
  • 1.2 red onion
  • 1 baby gem lettuce
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 bunch of coriander and parsley

Method

  1. Cook the buckwheat as per packet instructions with the bouillon diluted into the water. I usually leave on a very low heat for 12 minutes until all the water has been absorbed and rinse briefly with a little cold water.
  2. Finely dice all your salad ingredients, the tomatoes, lettuce and onion.
  3. Mix the salad with the buckwheat and squeeze in the lime juice.
  4. Finely chop the parsley and coriander and mix into the salad.

Food for Thought - Syria

Not only am I obsessed with Middle Eastern cuisine at the minute, but I am also deeply saddened by some of the terrible things people in Syria, and surrounding countries are having to go through.

Recent bereavements and being surrounded by bad news, both at home and in the news had left me feeling pretty helpless, and sad about a lot of the terrible things happening in the world right now.

This motivated fellow blogger Mandy Mazliah of Sneaky Veg and I to try and do something on our blogs,  even if it is just in the smallest way.

Mandy has been in touch with Médecins Sans Frontières (UK) who currently work in and around Syria to try and provide healthcare to those effected by the conflicts. We would like to raise money to help towards their efforts not only in Syria but Sudan too. Which I will post about later in this series.
