Texas Tabbouleh Recipe

I used to live in Texas and since moving away, missed those classic Tex-Mex flavors that were always such a big part of my meals. I decided to create a fresh and healthy salad that reminds me of traditional pico de gallo. My friends especially love it because it's so different; it's always a pretty popular dish at our gatherings. —Tammy Davis, Arlington, Virginia

MY REVIEW

I am always skeptical of recipes that are Texas adapted, but this is great. A good hearty salad or a vegetarian lunch. I substituted black eyed peas for black beans and cherry tomatoes, but still great. For a Texas taste, use queso fresco, not feta.

I prepared this recipe for a food demo highlighting healthy grains. I used quinoa instead. Very nice, the feta cheese gave it nice tang. Beautiful colors

We enjoyed this recipe last night along with grilled lamb. The recipe is very easy to make...directions are clear...except one step is missing...doesn't say how to prep the tomatoes, but I chopped them like the other veggies. I used feta cheese and parsley instead of cilantro. I would make this recipe again and again.
