Tabbouleh | Quiona Salad | Keen-wah Salad

For this weeks blogging marathon I'm showcasing " Soups & Salads". For the First day I made Tabbouleh an arab salad for the event. Check this Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38.

Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh is a arab salad, traditionally made of bulgur wheat & mix of veggies topped with a lemon & oil dressing. I replaced bulgur with quiona & rest of the salad recipe remained the same. It is sure a healthy filling salad.
