    The Lebanese claim that we stole this recipe directly from their culinary heritage, and honestly, there might be a seed of truth in that claim. But whereas the Lebanese Tabbouleh is a relatively simple (however, no less tasty) combination of bulgar wheat and chopped fresh herbs, the Israeli version is much richer – a sort of fruit and vegetable extravaganza, enriched with pine nuts and pomegranate seeds. And since we Israelis are not as hard working as the Lebanese, our Tabbouleh is based on instant couscous, found in your local supermarket.
