This is my take on a Tabouleh, it is probably not what the traditionalists would call a Tabouleh but I love this salad and make it on a regular basis. It is quick and easy and can be made with very little effort at all. A great choice when the weather is hot, especially if you already have some cooked bulgar wheat as it will just mean putting everything together. It is something you can experiment with and add different bits in, for example sometimes I will add some celery to add a bit of bite and a slightly different flavour. This version includes avocado which is an excellent super food and I try and eat at least 1 per week to get all the goodness I can from them.
