Tabouleh (kisir) recipe
Tabouleh, known as “kisir” in Turkey, is a light and refreshing salad that can be eaten at anytime of the day. It is made with cracked wheat; fresh veggies; olive oil and traditional seasonings. It can be served with pita bread; or romaine lettuce for a fuller look or just simply with a fork. I personally suggest to taste as you go along in preparation for any other additional preferences.
