Swapping cracked wheat for quinoa? Genius! I'd love to take credit for this substitution but I can't. I ate it at a pot luck lunch and it was delicious. Here's my totally made up version. Yummy!
1 large bunch curly leaf parsley, chopped
2 large tomatoes
1/4 red onion
1 cup quinoa, cooked
1 lemon, juiced
Chop the parsley, throwing away the stalks - too tough and chewy for me.
Chop the tomatoes into small pieces and add to a bowl with the parsley.
Finely chop the red onion and add to the bowl.
Juice the lemon and pour into a small jar with an equal amount of olive oil. Shake vigorously and then pour over the tabbouleh.
Mix salad well and serve.
