A sparkling wine like Blanc de Noirs is a great pairing option for this fresh herb-heavy tabbouleh salad
Savvy match: Blanc de Noirs or Brut offers robust acidity and crisp, forward flavors of lemon zest and tart apples. This clean, citrusy aspect will pair nicely with the lemon in the tabbouleh and complement the fresh cucumber, tomato, and mint beautifully.
Tabbouleh is a Mediterranean salad comprised mainly of fresh parsley, with tomatoes, mint, bulgur wheat, and a simple dressing of garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Tabbouleh is traditionally served as part of a mezze platter or other small plate appetizers and makes a great light, refreshing lunch. This dish is perfect for warm summer days or early fall; when fresh produce is plentiful, served cold, it’s highly refreshing when proper respect is shown to these simple ingredients.
