Radish Tabbouleh


  • 1 c. medium-grain bulgur wheat
  • 1 ¾ c. boiling water
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground
  • black pepper
  • ½ c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch (about 10) radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • ⅓ c. minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 green onions, including green parts, thinly sliced
  • 1 romaine lettuce heart, separated into individual leaves


Combine bulgur and boiling water in a medium bowl. Stir well and let stand until bulgur is tender, about 45 minutes. Drain well in a wire sieve, pressing hard on bulgur with a large spoon to remove any excess liquid.

Whisk together lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in oil. Add bulgur, radishes, parsley, and green onions and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

Season tabbouleh with salt and pepper (grain salads tend to need seasoning again after soaking up dressing). Line a serving platter with romaine leaves and heap the tabbouleh on top. Serve chilled or at room temperature, using the leaves to scoop up and eat the tabbouleh, if desired.
