Strawberry Tabbouleh

I think I’ve said this a few times before, here, here, here oh yeah and here too, that I truly hate tomatoes. This has kind of been a problem in my life but I have made it this far and I am not about to change today. I never ate pizza at my friend’s birthday parties or school field trips, but I never complained (or at least tried) because I knew I was the only person stopping me from joining in.

This is one of the reasons I like to cook. At restaurants, I always find myself thinking, I would like this dish without this food or that dish without that food. At home, I just make things to my own liking and I am happy as a clam.

Today I wanted to revamp an old recipe and give it a new twist. Once again, I am removing the tomatoes and adding something much more delicious, yes strawberries!

Today’s recipe is for strawberry tabbouleh. Tabbouleh is a traditional Mediterranean dish consisting of tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, parsley, mint, and bulgur. For my version I swapped out tomatoes for strawberries, mint for basil and added pistachios, because why not. Ever since I made pistachio pesto, I’ve decided that pistachios go really well with basil and strawberries… more of that coming soon.
