This refreshing salad combines classic tabbouleh ingredients but substitutes puffed brown rice for traditional bulgur and adds red cabbage for color and crunch. Ingredient tip: Puffed brown rice is rice's version of popcorn; be sure to use the unsweetened variety. Serving tip: To round out the meal, serve with hummus and whole-wheat pita bread.
