Yes, I just learned about this! I'm growing extra parsley this year so that I can make tabouli using quinoa in place of bulgar. I found a recipe in the second Oh She Glows cookbook .

I love tabouli but bulgar gives me a hay fever symptoms .

I'm not much of quinoa or taboull fan, but GB's recipe looked pretty delicious.

We used to love tuna sandwiches and egg salad sandwiches. Now we lose the bread, serve the salads on a plate and eat them using celery "scoops" like chopsticks. Eating healthy can be fun. Cool

We had a Mediterranean-Carribean salad with romaine, mixed greens, carrots, zucchini, parsley, mint, avocado, celery, cilantro, black beans and crumbled corn tortillas.  We topped it with goat yogurt and a squeeze of lime.

I called it health suey salad, but I am sure I will totally forget the name and recipe if we don't have it again in the next few days.

Speaking of suey, I have been on a campaign for years to get chop suey the respect it deserves.  It has been wrongly accused of being an American only recipe brought to this country by 19th century Chinese immigrants to sell to Americans.

I heard for years about how chop suey was not authentic Chinese food.  When I was in college in from 1978 to 1982, I was a real life Jack Tripper, rooming with two very nice coeds, one of who was from Taipei, Taiwan, and the other from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  They both said that almost every supper they ever ate consisted of throwing together whatever was left and channing (stir-frying) it with whatever sauce was available.

In essence, throughout history most average Chinese families did the same, and that is what we in this country have called chop suey since about 1895.  

BTW, I was well fed and healthily fed.

Portobello mushrooms -- our new steak and bacon.  Cool Cook it the same way for steak and the same way you'd cook turkey bacon when serving it with eggs. (Hubby is the cook in our house, so I'm a little vague on the details.)

What's with these Carrot Week and Salad Month festivities so early in the year?  Many of we northerners haven't even started to grow these things.  Sad

Beetles, what a gorgeous salad!  I'll bet it was tasty, too... drooling 

I don't have a picture to share, but Hubs and I recently found another new favorite in this Chopped Cauliflower Broccoli Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing:

http://peasandcrayons.com/2017/03/chopped-cauliflwoer-broccoli-salad-avocado-dressing.html

Crunchy; filling; with a lovely blend of complex, complimentary flavors; it's a perfect fit for Dr. Fuhrman's diabetes diet.

It was! Would eat again!

Your salad looks pretty good, but I'd give the broc and cauli and brief zap in the microwave. Partly because that much crunchy makes my jaws hurt, partly because I can't leave recipes well enough alone and rarely follow them completely. The hard part here would be finding 1 1/2 ripe avocadoes. My usual grocery store usually sells three kinds of avocados: creampuffs (way overripe), rocks (unripe), and softshell clams (they seem just barely ripe, but you open them to find out they are mostly brown goo.)
