Karl’s Iraqi Tabbouleh

Adapted from a Recipe Lion recipe

I came upon a recipe for Iraqi barbecued chicken and I wanted some Iraqi side dishes to go with it. I found a recipe for Iraqi pickled vegetables and another 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. Other additions to the basic elements can be tomatoes, cucumbers, red or green onions, olives, and for the Iraqi version pickled artichoke.
