Tabbouleh with Chicken and Red Pepper Recipes

Tabbouleh with Chicken and Red Pepper

Nutty, nutritious bulgur, perhaps best known as the star of Lebanese tabbouleh, can be used like brown rice in salads and pilafs, or simply cooked or steamed and drizzled with oil and sprinkled with chopped herbs. Mediterranean and Middle Eastern markets carry bulgur, or look for it in the grains section of large grocery stores. Pack with hummus and pita chips for the complete effect.

Smart Packing Tip: Salt draws moisture out of watery ingredients like cucumber and tomatoes, so pack these separately and add to the grain salad at the last minute for best results.
