Parsley is often seen as a side garnish, but not in Tabbouleh. (pronounced - Tah-boo-lee). This traditional lebanese dish is getting a western upgrade with the addition of Orzo. And bonus, parsley is packed with antioxidants and antibacterial properties. Served chilled, it’s the perfect healthy side for the warmer days ahead.

Cherry Tomatoes - 1 pint
Mint Leaves - 1 small bunch, finely sliced
Green Onions - 2, finely sliced
Orzo - 1/2 cup
