Walnut Tabbouleh

The ingredients of tabbouleh vary in different countries. In Lebanon, it is made with bulghar wheat (aka bulgur), tomatoes, onions, lemons and herbs. In Morocco, it is made with couscous, tomatoes, onions, lemons, parsley and mint. And other parts of the Levant, it is made with semolina, tomatoes, onions, lemons, herbs and raisins. Pascaline of Les Folies de la Serve B&B has added walnuts to make her own version, which is delicious!
