Lunch Was all About Green

Green salad with about 1/4 cup of capers. I just love capers. In addition I had 4 large green olives and about 3/4 cup of tabouli. Let's not forget 4 mini sweet bell peppers. The yellow and red ones. Yum! I could eat those all day! I love tabouli. Try this recipe for tabouli.


6 oz. bulgur wheat
1 c. water
3/4 c. lemon juice
6 med. tomatoes
1 1/2 c. chopped green onions
1 1/2 c. diced green pepper
3/4 c. parsley
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground coriander
1/8 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. pepper
24 leaves Romaine lettuce

In large bowl combine bulgur wheat, water and lemon juice; cover and refrigerate until all liquid is absorbed, about one hour. Add remaining ingredients, except lettuce to wheat mixture and stir to combine; line serving dish with lettuce leaves and spoon tabouli over lettuce. Serves 6.

You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
