Tabbouleh Salad

IMG_2571

I could eat tabbouleh salad every day for the rest of eternity. George Carlin did a stand up bit about death and how whatever you think your afterlife is going to be, it will be. My afterlife is me constantly munching tabbouleh salad. This pleasing five minute masterpiece is all you’ll ever need:

Juice of half a lemon (around 2 Tablespoons)
1/4 cup olive oil
Cucumber (about 1 cup)
Tomato (around 2 or 3 depending on size)
Green onion (1 or 2)
Parsley (1 bunch, rinsed and stems removed)
Mint (1 Tablespoon)

Salt and pepper to taste

(recipe can easily be doubled)
