Recently, I came across a new recipe which quickly became one of my favorite. I lived in the Middle East for 10 years but funny enough, I never tried to make Arabic food. Maybe because it was wildly available in Dubai. However, after I moved, I started to miss and crave some dishes. This is how I reached the point of going out of my comfort zone and experimenting with new cuisine. Luckily, to make a Tabbouleh Salad much easier than it looks. So now you can get this fascinating experience if you are ready to go out of your comfort zone.
