Popular in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean countries, tabbouleh is traditionally made with wheat bulgur, but it gets an easy gluten-free twist and nutrition boost thanks to the delicious seed quinoa. This recipe is quick and easy to prepare, but the flavors deepen after it sits in the refrigerator for an hour or two, or even overnight.
