“Brigitte Bardot (for those of you who don't know she was an old French actress who was a vegetarian) loved this tabbouleh salad which is closer to a couscous dish. You can try it if you liked her, or you can try it because it tastes awesome! Minty, lemony and absolutely refreshing. Good for picnics. Refrigeration time is not included in prep time. From today's Sunday NY Times.”
