Do the same to the mint and add them to the parsley. Chop the tomatoes and add them to the bowl too.

Squeeze the lemon. Peel and chop the onion and put them in the lemon juice, add the peppers and salt.

Taste and season according to your taste from here on.

Some people prefer a lemony Tabbouleh, some like it salty. Do it your way!

Serve immediately as the cracked wheat tends to become soggy. But this has never kept me from finishing left over Tabbouleh the next day!

Bon appetit!
