This tabbouleh is my family's version of the Middle Eastern dish.
It's the perfect refreshing dish for hot summer days. It can be served as side dish or main entree. It's a great addition to a summer potluck table.
Ingredients (serve 4 as entree, more as side dish):
* 1 cup couscous
* 1/2 cup olive oil
* 1/2 cup lemon juice
* 4-5 sprigs of mint, chopped
* 3-4 tomatoes, diced
* 1 cucumber, diced
In a big bowl, mix the couscous, olive oil, lemon juice, and mint. Let it sit overnight in the fridge.
The next morning, fluff up the couscous and add the diced tomatoes and cucumber (and their juice). Mix well. Keep in fridge till ready to serve.
