What exactly is Tabouleh or Tabouli? Excuse me but i don't know the correct spelling. I hear of this thing often. It it a dish or an ingredient or a method?

Tabouli is a Middle Eastern vegetarian salad. Its primary ingredients are typically bulgur, lemon juice, tomato, mint, parsley and other herbs. you can sample this in a lebanese or turkish restaurant. It is served cold.

Thanks honeylemon. Yes, I have seen them in the menu of a Lebanese restaurant here. Did not try though. Do you also have a recipe to make this at home?

Place uncooked bulgar in a bowl; pour in water over it and let it soak one hour (stir occasionally)
Drain well in a fine strainer.
Return bulgar to the bowl and add all other ingredients; mix well.

2 cups dry bulgur
2 cups boiling water
parsley chopped fine, about 1/2-3/4 cup
lettuce chopped small, about 1 fluffy cup
fresh tomato, about 3, cut up in small pieces
cucumber, cut into small pieces, about 1/2-3/4 cup
mint, optional. Some people like this.
olive oil, good quality, 1/2 cup
lemon juice 2/3 cup
salt to taste
Combine boiling water and bulgur, cover and let grain soak up the water. Using this combination it will come out just right...no extra water.
Add cut up salad ingredients. Then add dressing, and mix.
Chill all together
