Tabbouleh… a zesty, zingy, mouth explosion of a salad!

This tastes insanely delicious, looks absolutely glorious and impresses anyone you serve it to... if that wasn’t enough, it is healthy and fits in with many dietary preferences as it is vegan, vegetarian, wheat-free, dairy free, alkalising, low in sugars (so could be good for diabetics) and without the carbs should even be paleo/primal friendly. If you have a food processor, this takes just minutes to prepare. If you don’t, well then it will take you longer because of the chopping involved... but food made with culinary TLC (time, love and care) does often taste more delicious...
