Today is a beautiful day in the southern half of France and it will last the whole weekend (sorry for the northern half, if so really !), then, to make you want to go on a picnic this weekend, I offer you a classic recipe of tabbouleh.

Mr. love tabbouleh, it could devour the bowl all by himself if I let him do (what a glutton !), and what is nice is that you can adapt it according to your needs and add raisins for a sweet version-salt or white beans to make the dish more complete.

So, in order to enjoy the last fine days, and for the enjoyment of Mr. here is the recipe.


Ingredients (for 4-6)

  • 375 g of semolina couscous fine
  • The juice of two lemons
  • 10 cl of water
  • 8 cl of olive oil
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2 onions c├ębette
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh mint
  • Salt and pepper


In a bowl, pour the water, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper and then add the semolina couscous.

Wash and snip the mint and add it into the bowl. Do the same with the onions.

Wash and cut the tomatoes and the cucumber into the small from and add to the preparation.

Stir well together and leave to swell in the fridge for 1 hour minimum.

Good tabbouleh !
