Texas Tabbouleh Recipe

I used to live in Texas and since moving away, missed those classic Tex-Mex flavors that were always such a big part of my meals. I decided to create a fresh and healthy salad that reminds me of traditional pico de gallo. My friends especially love it because it's so different; it's always a pretty popular dish at our gatherings. —Tammy Davis, Arlington, Virginia TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + chilling YIELD:10 servings


1 cup bulgur

2 cups boiling water

3 medium tomatoes

1 cup finely chopped red onion

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

1/4 cup lime juice

3 tablespoons canola oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained

1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese


1. Place bulgur in a large bowl; stir in boiling water. Let stand, covered, 30 minutes or until bulgur is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Drain well, pressing out excess water. Cool completely.

2. Stir in tomatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro, lime juice, oil and seasonings. Add beans; toss to combine. Refrigerate, covered, at least 30 minutes. Serve with cheese. Yield: 10 servings.

Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
