Diabetic Tabouli Salad Recipe

Tabouli salad is a classic Arabic recipe that combines cracked wheat, often called bulgar, with a variety of great vegetables and spices. The lemon juice, parsley, salt and olive oil really make the flavors standout.

The serving size is somewhat small, so this makes a great side salad, or you can add a little more and make a meal out of it.
