If you’re in Europe, we feel you. It’s gotten hot! It’s 36.1°C at 5 pm currently (that’s 96.98°F!). We’ve been hiding indoors in dark rooms, only emerging in the early morning / late evening.
Cooking, anyone? No, thanks!

Let’s start with a Mint Cucumber Tabbouleh Salad!
Tabbouleh Salad is a popular Middle Eastern grain salad. We made ours using bulgur, cucumbers, tomatoes, parsley, mint, and lemon for a refreshing main or side dish.
This salad is light and refreshing, yet brings you wonderful flavors and actually fills you up!
To make this Mint Cucumber Tabbouleh Salad just start by cooking the bulgur (cracked wheat) for about 15 minutes in salted water. Once cooked, let rest and then cool down.
Then, combine the cooked grain with fresh vegetables, like cucumbers and tomatoes, add fresh finely chopped herbs (we chose mint and parsley) and drizzle with a delicious and refreshing lemon dressing… and you’re good to go!
This Tabbouleh Salad will keep in the fridge in an air-tight container for a couple of days and is a good meal-prep office lunch.
If you do not have bulgur, couscous or even orzo pasta will work just as well.
