Buffet on Table: Week 1 — Combos from Countries

Day 4: Middle East — Tabbouleh, Hummus & Pita Platter

Our next stop for an amazing International Combo meal is in the Middle East. This Tabbouleh, Hummus, pita and falafel platter has been something I have planned to make for a very long time. Finally I made them all for the Mega marathon 🙂

Tabbouleh is a traditional Middle Eastern dish. There are many versions for this bulgur wheat salad. This recipe is from Vegetarian Times magazine and I’m assuming it is from Lebanon since it is more about the herbs and less about the bulgur grain itself.

I used herbs from my garden to make this dish and it tasted so fresh and delicious. The salad gets better as it sits, so it is better to make it a day ahead and serve with hummus, falafel and pita bread for a very filling meal.

  1. Cant ask more your tabbouleh ,hummus and pita platter is just inviting me to finish them rite now.. Especially the tabbouleh sounds very flavourful..Needless to say that your cast iron skillet Pita breads rocks.

  2. beautiful clicks and an awesome combo !..even though I am not a great fan of this salad, I do not mind if I am being served by experts :).looks gorgeous !

  3. A great setup Pavani. We love this combo except that the tabbouleh is only for me 🙂 and the rest is for the kids and the husband.

  4. Love that salad bowl close up shot. I too have been planning to make this meal from so long but somehow cooking an elaborate Indian meal seems easier sometimes than cooking a simple dish from another country. I may be crazy. 🙂
