MINTY-FRUITY TABBOULEH
from "Nicole Routhier's Fruit Cookbook" by Nicole Routhier

Tabbouleh, one of my favorite salads, is refreshing, filling, healthful, and relatively low in calories. It's great for lunch, dinner, and snacks, and it is a perfect no-wilt summer salad to bring to picnics. In this quick and easy recipe, chewy bulgur wheat, sweet grapes, crisp cucumber, cool mint, and tart vinaigrette produce an unusual but exquisite salad. It makes a perfect side dish to roast meat or chicken. For a more substantial, main dish, add tender cooked shrimp.

Yield: 2 Entrée or 4 Side Dish Servings
