Remarks
Using several varieties of tomatoes with different colours and flavours is easy in summer. This will give you a superb and delicious tart. But of course, if you can only use one type of tomato, this will still work well.

After cooking, you can brush the tart with olive oil a second time to give it an attractive shine.

If you don't have a second tart tin, you can use the classic method of filling the tart case with ceramic baking beans or lentils instead.
Keeping
1 day in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

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.
