About this recipe: This tabbouleh recipe is different. Instead of using bulgur like traditional tabbouleh, this recipe uses quinoa. It is a grain that is available at health shops. It looks and tastes better than bulgur. My husband and I both love this and neither of us is vegetarian. It's a great meal for a hot summer day. The longer it sits the better it tastes.
