    This is the first time I have seen prawns in a tabbouleh salad, and I found it a fresh addition. Overall, I did enjoy this recipe, but I did note that its a salad that needs to be consumed within a day or two as the bulgur tends to take on a goopy consistency when it marinates with the other ingredients for too long.  -  07 Aug 2008


    Huge picnic hit!  -  07 Aug 2008


    Wish I could give this 6 stars. The cucumber was a nice change from tomato. The different fresh flavours of the herbs and ginger blend well but are distinctly different. I can't say enough good things about this salad. Everyone who tries it loves it.  -  07 Aug 2008
