Tabouli Salad

Relaxing on the couch watching The Living Room Friday night when my favourite part began.  Cooking of course.  This Tabouli Salad was just perfect as I had a lovely cauliflower fresh my our garden.

Such a refreshing and healthy salad and the best part is the kids love it.  They can help themselves and they even ask for more.  I've just harvested another cauliflower this morning so I think another batch will be needed.

The recipe grates the cauliflower and broccoli however I used the food processor and just made sure not to overdo things.  A little crunch is needed.

Tabouli Salad.

1 small head of cauliflower
½ head of broccoli
½ punnet cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
½ red onion, diced
1 small zucchini, diced
1 small bunch parsley
1 small bunch coriander
1 small bunch basil
⅓ cup olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Black pepper for seasoning
1 tablespoon ground sumac

Remove the stalks from the cauliflower and place the florets into a food processor.  Process into small pieces making sure to leave a little crunch.  Tip into a large bowl.

Repeat with the broccoli and add to the bowl with the cauliflower.

Add the cherry tomatoes and red onion and mix well.

Place the herbs into the food processor and once again process until just chopped.  Avoid over processing.  Add to the bowl and mix together.

Dress with the olive oil, lemon juice, black pepper and sumac mixing well.

Very simple, fresh, healthy and tasty.


  1. I'm making this one, that's for sure. All healthy and fits my 12 week challenge eating plan and lifestyle eating change. It's on the menu for tomorrow. Thanks Kylie. Cheers Lyndie

    1. I am absolutely loving it Lyndie and will be making another in a few days. The kids are also really enjoying the flavours.

  2. That looks really healthy and delicious! I'n not a fan of tabouli salad normally because I"m not overly keen on a lot of parsley but I think I'd love this version! Meg:)

    1. I’m similar Meg with basil. Can be a little strong if I use too much.

  3. That looks so healthy and delicious. I didn't know you could grind sumac and use it. I have a plant in the backyard. The chickens used to love the berries. Do you harvest the leaves, Kylie? Thanks for sharing.

    1. I purchased the ground sumac. First time I had used it actually. Adds a great flavour.

  4. Cauliflower is a great substitute for bulgur wheat and more nutritious than the regular tabouli. Thanks for the recipe Kylie.

    1. First time I’ve made a Tabouli Nil but really love the cauliflower option too.
