Mint Medley® Tabouleh Salad with Feta, Cucumber and Olives

bigelow tea recipe

Ingredients

  • Bigelow Mint Medley Herbal Tea Bags
  • ¾ cups Bulgur Wheat (Tabouleh)
  • 1 ¼ cups boiling water
  • 1 large tomato, split and cut into ¼ inch dice
  • ½ cucumber, peeled, and cut into ¼ inch dice
  • ¾ – 1 cup crumbled feta cheese, about 4 ounces
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions
  • ¼ cup chopped pitted Greek olives
  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • Plenty of freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Pour the Bulgur wheat into a bowl. In a glass measuring cup, pour one cup of boiling water over the tea bags and steep for 4-5 minutes. Remove the tea bags to a small strainer and using the back of the spoon, press as much liquid as possible back into the cup. If needed, add additional boiling water to measure 1 cup, then pour it over the Buglur wheat. Let it stand until all the liquid evaporates, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Put the finished tabouleh (Bulgur wheat) in a salad bowl. Add the tomato, cucumber, feta cheese, scallions, mint and olives, turning to mix well. Pour in the olive oil; add salt and pepper and toss again. Taste to adjust the seasonings, if necessary. Serve over a bed of lettuce leaves.

  • Bigelow Wild Blueberry with Acai Herbal Tea*
  • 1 tablespoon honey (15mL)
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon Mustard (30mL)
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (250mL)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (5mL)
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • *Optional – tarragon, fresh, chopped or dried

*Variations – Try using our Cranberry Hibiscus Herbal Tea or Green Tea with Wild Blueberry & Acai

Instructions

Pour the vinegar into a small microwave-safe bowl, and cook on high for 1 minute, or cook in a saucepan on medium heat, until bubbles are visible. Remove, add the teabags, and steep for 5 minutes. Remove the teabags to a small strainer and, using the back of a spoon, press as much liquid as possible back into the bowl. Stir in the honey and mustard, then pour the mixture into an electric blender or a food processor. Add garlic and salt. Slowly drizzle the oil while the machine is running until it is smooth and creamy. Cover and refrigerate if not using right away.
