The other day when I was enjoying my pomegranate and pistachio whole wheat couscous salad it reminded me a little of tabbouleh . Tabouleh is a Mediterranean parsley salad that also commonly includes things like bulgur, mint, tomatoes, etc. I always enjoy whole grain salads and I was thinking that one would make for a nice light day before T day meal. For the pomegranate tabbouleh salad I went with the standard tabbouleh components and then I added pomegranate seeds and some of the pomegranate vinaigrette from the pomegranate couscous salad for the pomegranate components. From there I added some chopped walnuts and some feta to make the salad a bit heartier. The pomegranate tabbouleh salad turned out great! The the bulgur was light and fluffy and the pomegranate vinaigrette ensured that it stayed nice and moist. I really enjoyed the salty feta and juicy sweet and tart pomegranate combo. The large amount of parsley and mint made the salad seem so fresh and vibrant. I will definitely be making this pomegranate tabbouleh salad again!
