Made some tabbouleh this weekend. i've been waiting to for ages and finally had the time.
Here's the recipe from my buddy Jeff. It makes a tonne so next time I will half the recipe...

Cook and cool:
1 c lentils (cook in 3 c water for 30 minutes)
1 c barley (cook in 2 c water for 30 minutes)
1 c brown rice (cook in 2 c water until done)
1/3 c spelt or wild rice (cook in 2 c water for 30 minutes).
(I found a rice mix at Extra Foods that had equal amounts of barley, brown rice and spelt in it so I used that instead. Easy peasy.)

Add in:
1 english cucumber chopped
1 jalapeno chopped
2 tomatoes chopped
large handful of parsley chopped
1 sweet red pepper chopped
6 red onions chopped

Dressing: mix 4 cloves garlic into 1/4 c olive oil, 1/4 c lemon juice, 1 T lime juice, 3 T cider vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Pour on dressing and mix well and enjoy. The longer it sits in the fridge the better it tastes :)
