This is another sort of tabbouleh salad.

Silly Peter Salad
Serving Size: 6


  • 2 bunches of parsley, very finely chopped
  • 1 cup bulgur or couscous

  • 4 tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  1. Soften the bulgur or couscous in 1 cup of water for 10-15 minutes or until soft.
  2. Pour off any left over water and set the grains in a large salad bowl.
  3. Cut the parsley very fine, you can use a knife or scissors. (Don’t use the big thick stems, just the leaves)
  4. Finely chop the onion and tomato and add to the salad.
  5. Mix the lemon juice, olive oil salt and pepper, and add to the salad.
  6. Allow to season in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

This salad keeps well, and in fact tastes even better on the second day.
It makes a yummy sandwich with a nice spread and a large helping of Silly Peter.
