This dish is more herbs than grains, but that is definitely not a bad thing. Tabbouleh is a vibrant Middle Eastern dish that can be eaten with just about anything. It should be a staple at any BBQ or picnic too.
Although traditionally it is made with bulgar wheat, you could use couscous, rice or pearl barley or any other grain instead if you don't have bulgar wheat on hand.
It makes great leftovers as well, so if you want to double the ingredients, you can serve it with meals for a couple of days after.
