Traditionally, this Lebanease salad is made using bulgar wheat, but this Quinoa Tabbouleh is entirely gluten free. Everything else is the same, and oh-so-simple: tomatoes, onion, mint, parsley, lemon juice, and a splash of olive oil. Skip the expensive salad bar, and make this healthy recipe at home instead.
