Taboule is one of those side dishes that I make all the time to just have around and snack on through out the week.  It is always a hit when I bring it to dinner parties and people are always surprised at how incredibly simple it is to make.

First off, go to your local grocery store and get Near East, Taboule Wheat Salad Mix.  It is usually found in the pasta isle near the rice.  It is 100% natural and very low cost.  The instructions on how to prepare the taboule mix is on the back of the box but I have included it here also.  I also purchased tomato, parsley, onion, black olives, feta cheese, lemon juice, and olive oil to include in the mixture.  You could add any other fresh ingredients you might want, like cucumber, cranberries, etc.
  1. In a large bowl, combine wheat and contents of spice sack.  Stir in 1 cup boiling water.  Cover and let stand 30 min. in refrigerator.

While it is cooling, start chopping fresh tomato, parsley, onion, and black olives.  After the taboule is cooled to at least room temperature and the water has all been absorbed, add your fresh ingredients along with the feta, lemon juice, olive oil, and a little salt for seasoning.  There are no exact measurements for these ingredients, I just chop however much I see fit and then add more if needed.  I only use about 2 Tbsp. olive oil though.  Being a huge fan of lemon flavor I tend to add a lot of the lemon juice, just tasting as I add the ingredients to make sure the flavors are mixing well. 

It is suggested on the box to let dish refrigerate at least an hour before serving but I actually like this dish served best at room temperature so I let it sit out for a little while before serving. 

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do and good luck!
