    This tabouli is AMAZING!! I like to add extra greens. I also omit the wheat due to an allergy and it comes out fantastic without it, but I'm going to try adding quinoa next time.

    Pretty much how I make mine except I use green onion. Most don’t use garlic but they don’t know what they are missing.

    Hi Hilah! Thank you for the video. Easy to make tabouleh! Do you think I can make a day before I actually need? I'm having a party and I would prefer to get few things done the day before.

    Love tabouleh- no one really around here makes it at the restaurant I've gone to. I miss living in a metropolitan city where you can actually get ethnic foods. Guess I will just have to make it ;)

    Hilah great recipe, but you just contaminated the salad by putting the spoon in your mouth and using it again to stir the salad. Just hope you are the only one eating this salad!

    instead of using a garlic press, you can easily make a garlic 'paste' by roughly shopping the clove(s), then crushing them under the flat lemet of your knife while pushing down on it, while moving and scraping your knife over the board.. it's hard to explain, but it's easy and you never get chunks of garlic in your dish!

    Oh wow! I knew about the genetics part (poor guys!) but never had heard of a medication that would do it. How awful! I guess it got better once you were off the meds?

    The deal with the cilantro is definitely not always a preference but some sort of chemical thing in the person's body. I have a friend who thinks it tastes like soap . . . and I was once on a medication that made cilantro taste TERRIBLE to me (I usually love it). I couldn't even use seasoned salt because there was dried cilantro in it, and the smell made me feel almost sick.

    Im a lebanese.this salad came from my culture we invented it.the thing is that u didnt make it tabouli u never ever put pepper, onion and all wrong and u r supposed to put more lemon juice then oil.thay was to much oil.u only have to put 4 table spoons or even less.and u have to put quarter cup lemon jiuce because thats the point of tabouli.its supposed to have a sour bitter but nice taste.and another mistake is the ammount if parcley. The amount of parcley is usually m

    @achtagon Thanks, buddy! Yeah, it's crazy to me that people hate cilantro. I've heard it's genetic. Like, it literally tastes different to some people than it does to me. Weird.

    cilantro haters are a well-documented sub-culture - but I love it! There's a link on the coriander wikipedia page to a Wall Street Journal article about people who get sick from the smell.
    keep up the sweet vidz - go team cilantro ! Don't listen to the haters.

    No wonder I couldn't find it even though I spell it Tabouli there's more then one way to spell it and I was told the "proper" way was tabouleh couldn't find your video because you spell it the way I like to lol. Tabouleh even though it can be spelt that way just looks wrong to me lol wasn't gonna argue ith the person and thanks for telling me you had this. Looks delicious hope I can find the ingredients will be substituing the cilanto with parsley can't stand the stuff.
