Tabouleh Salad w/ Falafel & Hummus Dressing

This yummy salad is packed with wonderful, fresh, middle-eastern flavors. Lately I have been combining it with falafel or with hummus dressing.


This works for the weight loss food plan, and is even better on the maintenance food plan because you get more of it!
