Tabouleh-Cucumber Salad

It’s so hot out these days, 99º yesterday afternoon, I wanted a no-cook lunch today.  Made a small batch of my “Hummus” and tossed together a quick Tabouleh-like salad, since I didn’t have quite enough parsley in the fridge to make a proper Tabouleh.  We both ended up liking this almost as much as the real recipe for Tabouleh, but we’re real cuke fans.  This delicious recipe is suitable for all phases of Atkins and other Ketogenic diets.  It is suited to a Primal or Paleo program as well.

  1. Wonderful! I have a bumper crop of parsley and it’s not something I typically use a lot of. And the cucumbers are coming on strong, with a few tomatoes ripening. We had this AND your tabouleh recipe today and they were quite enjoyable.
