Tabouleh Salad

I can’t believe Memorial Day is right around the corner. School will be over in a few weeks and then… hello summer!

I LOVE summer. It’s probably my favorite time of the year. The warm weather, the pool, the beach… And most of all, I love what I call “summer food”. I don’t know about you, but when the weather gets really hot, all I want to eat is fresh, light food. Lots of fruit and veggies, salads… Hmmm

So here’s an idea for you. How about you make this Memorial Day a “Meatless Monday Memorial Day” , middle eastern / mediterranean style? I’m thinking, humus, fatoush and tabouleh salad, spring onions with romesco sauce and a nice potato omelette  maybe??

Think about it. It could be the beginning of a new tradition…

Have a great Holiday weekend!

      Growing up, our mom used to make it all the time with fresh tomatoes my that would bring from his garden. She taught us how to make it. Sooo delicious!
