Kale Tabbouleh

 A wonderful version of the classic tabbouleh with kale and vegetables in yoghurt dressing. It is a nice and filling dish to enjoy on weekdays lunch.

The crispy vegetables, soft bulgur and nutty hazelnuts make the tabbouleh more interesting and delicious. We had a nice and filling meal with some juice and weekday lunch was served.
