Tabbouleh is a refreshing Middle Eastern salad made with finely chopped parsley, mint, tomatoes, onions, and bulgur wheat, dressed with lemon juice and olive oil. It is a vibrant and nutritious dish often served as part of mezze or as a side dish.


Enjoy this zesty, health promoting salad from the Eastern Mediterranean.


Here are two takes on this classic dish...




As part of a nutritionally rich, whole health lifestyle, at The Whole Health Practice we advocate enjoying herbs (and spices) as a regular part of one’s diet. While some herbs have shown positive results for specific health outcomes, nutrition science and the interaction of polyphenols from different plant sources is incredibly complex. Enjoy a healthy eating pattern with a variety of herbs, spices and whole foods that work in synergy to promote maximum health. Think fruits, berries, beans, vegetables, and whole grains; add colour to your dishes wherever possible.


Stay Herby,
