"This tabbouleh is as authentic as you can get! It's a compilation of recipes I've taken from my mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and various cookbooks. This can be served on romaine lettuce leaves for garnish. Also, I've noticed that this recipe tastes even better the next day, so don't hesitate to make it the day before your guests arrive."
