Lebanese tabbouleh is different from the classic version. It is made from bulgur wheat (burghul), rather than semolina and, most characteristically, includes a lot of parsley.

Drain the bulgur wheat and add this to the bowl with 3 tablespoons lemon juice and 3 tablespoons olive oil.

Salt lightly, pepper and mix well.

Your Lebanese tabbouleh is ready.

Remarks

If you don't have spring onions, just use a small normal onion, red if possible.

Whether Lebanese tabbouleh should include mint or not is a good question: I don't think so, but you should go along with your own taste, of course.
