Classic Tabbouleh Salad – Grandma Style

A classic tabbouleh salad recipe, made in the style of my grandmother. Bright flavors, fresh ingredients, and a beautiful presentation make this salad a favorite!

Tabbouleh is one of those salads that I ate all the time growing up. The ingredients are nutritious and the salad is so easy to prepare for a crowd.

Sometimes it would be paired with a more classic Middle Eastern main dish like stuffed grape leaves, and other times, we’d eat it with takeout pizza.  (more…)

Healthy Spinach Patties

Spinach also tastes really good.  (more…)

Brussels Sprouts Salad

It takes just 10 minutes to make this easy and delicious fresh Brussels sprouts salad with flavors inspired by the Mediterranean!

I think I have more Brussels sprouts recipes on this blog than any other single ingredient. I know it’s definitely the most frequently featured vegetable, but I’ve always roasted it or cooked it in some way, and this time I didn’t, so it’s different enough to merit ANOTHER Brussels sprouts post. Brussels sprouts are wonderful in any season, even when you can’t bear the thought of turning on the oven. They’re versatile like that. (more…)
