Tabbouleh is a must for us while the weather is too hot outside, obviously picnic is much needed once the Sun god shows his face. We wait eagerly for hot weather here after hibernating for almost 6 months under the nasty chilled,snowy climate. You must visit Paris when the weather is hot, you can see easily each and every public gardens will be filled with peoples either taking sun baths or else with their picnic baskets. We love to pack foods for picnic almost every weekend during summer. Obviously Tabbouleh have its important place in our picnic basket as this chilled salad please everyone's tastebuds easily. Tabbouleh is very easy to prepare with simple ingredients. Spiced with pepper powder, salt and olive oil, this tabbouleh is definitely a prefect summer salad to enjoy without any fuss.
