For someone who knows nothing about Tabouli, I bought this small box which was supposed to be a wheat salad of some sort mixed in with tons of parsley. The directions were easy to follow. Add hot water, olive oil, and then mix in some tomatoes. I was expecting this to taste like couscous with some tomatoes and parsley, that was all good. I wasn’t expecting this to taste so sour. So lemony. Though after tasting it, I realized that this might have paired perfectly well with some strong lamb. But seriously, my senses were puckering up from the first taste and smell of the sour tabouli. Sorry but I won’t trying one from the box so soon again. I may have to try the real thing with real food before I can appreciate it.
