Blogging Marathon# 41: Week 2/ Day 2

Theme: Picnic Hamper Dishes

Dish: Quinoa Tabbouleh

Salads are really perfect to take along for picnics, especially the ones made with grains or pasta. They can be made ahead of time and the resting gives the grains a chance to absorb all the flavors. And the biggest advantage of all is they can be served at room temperature without any problem.

Today’s dish for ‘Picnic Hamper‘ is another healthy and delicious salad (check out yesterday’s Bread Salad). Tabbouleh is traditionally made with bulgur, but I made it with quinoa instead. It is very flavorful with the addition of fresh herbs, mint and parsley, and veggies, cucumber and tomato.

  1. Looks so tempting! I also make my tabbouleh with quinoa. I found this as a good vehicle to serve quinoa to my family 🙂

  2. We need to get this from special grocery stores and is highly priced so it gets difficult to use it regularly. But this salad looks really colourful and pretty.

  3. Lovely recipe again !! As always, I have ended up book marking more than 10 recipes from this site 🙂
