If there’s one thing we can agree on, a tabbouleh recipe needs to be really fresh and herby. It’s ideal served as a side dish, or as part of a platter. To help create a meal, you could think about dishes containing halloumi or lamb.

Lemon juice and olive oil also tend to feature, as well as plenty of flatleaf parsley.
