Karl’s Moorish Tabbouleh

The Moors controlled most of present day Spain from the 8th–15th centuries. They introduced almonds, citrus fruit and rice, as well as the irrigation systems necessary to grow them to the Iberian Peninsula.  Tomatoes, potatoes, and chilies—items common to today’s Spanish and Moroccan cuisines—had not yet been introduced to European diets. I am making a Moorish chicken for Sunday’s sinner and I decided that a tabbouleh would be a good side dish.

Karl’s Tabbouleh

I came upon a recipe for Iraqi tabbouleh.  Just about every country in the Middle East has a variation of this salad of grain, parsley and mint dressed with lemon and oil. My family like the Iraqi tabbouleh so much that I had to make my own variation.
