Tabbouleh is a flavorful vegetarian dish from the Mediterranean. Some call it a salad. It consists of finely chopped bulghur, cucumbers, parsley, mint and onion.
Ingredients — serves 12 to 16
2 cups cracked wheat (bulghur)
2 cups very hot water
1 cucumber, chopped
3 small tomatoes, chopped
1 bunch green onions, (8) sliced
1/2 cup fresh chopped mint
2 cups fresh chopped cilantro or parsley.
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Soak the cracked wheat in the hot water until the water is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Drain any excess water, if necessary, and squeeze dry. Combine the salad ingredients, including wheat, in a medium bowl. Mix the dressing ingredients together and stir into the salad mixture. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Kim Crawford Winery — New Zealand
“These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighbouring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly subsoils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age, up to 14 years, bringing a mix of youthful vigour and depth of flavour. Great to drink with anyone at any time. Pairs brilliantly with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads.”
