Recipe: Middle Eastern Summer Salad – Cali Press

When we think of a summer salad, we think of local fresh produce with a bit of zest and zing! That’s why we love with this grain-free, chickpea tabouleh recipe from our friends over at ‘Running On Real Food’. Traditionally, this Middle Eastern dish is made from fresh vegetables, bulgur or couscous, olive oil, sesame and herbs such as parsley and mint. In this grain-free version we’re going to use mashed chickpeas in place of couscous, leave out the olive oil completely, add plenty of garlic, fresh lemon juice, parsley, sea salt and use some tahini to add a creaminess to it all. This twist on the traditional recipe really compliments the rest of those original Middle Eastern flavours and also adds some healthy fibre and protein too! Enjoy.
