This week's Diabetic Dish of the Week is Tabbouleh. I had never heard of this one, but came across it on the CooksRecipes website and wanted to pass it along. Looks like it would make a great side dish with Pork or Chicken. Using Bulgur Wheat along with tomato, cucumber, green onions, low-fat plain yogurt, and a nice varirty of herbs and spices! You can find this recipe at the CooksRecipes website, enjoy! http://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html
