    There are many wonderful, hearty salads out there with grains as their main ingredient, and tabbouleh is not one of them. Granted, the Levantine salad has bulgur in it — without the bulgur it wouldn't be tabbouleh. But bulgur is not tabbouleh's main ingredient. Tabbouleh is not a grain salad with herbs in it; it is an herb salad with grains in it.
