Tabbouleh, is probably the most famous recipe in the Lebanese cuisine. As many says, tabbouleh is a labor of love as it requires a LOT of time in the kitchen to finely chop ingredients to perfection. I know there are probably hundreds if not thousands of recipes out there for tabbouleh salad, so what makes mine different, it came from the heart and soul of a Lebanese friend who is very angry at what is happening to the Lebanese tabbouleh
These “Arab pizzas” probably date back to the fifteenth century and would have appeared in the region of the Beqaa Valley in Eastern Lebanon close to the Syrian border, the capital of which is Baalbek. An Iraqi family named Haidar is at the origin of the recipe.
