About this recipe: This tabbouleh recipe is different. Instead of using burghul, like traditional tabbouleh, this recipe uses quinoa, a grain that is available at health food stores. It looks and tastes better than burghul. My husband and I both love this and neither of us is vegetarian. It's a great meal for a hot day. The longer it sits, the better it tastes.
