Tip: Once you season your tabbouleh, the fresh tomatoes and herbs will release some moisture which can make your tabbouleh soggy. There are three ways of combatting this wetness – firstly, eat straight away! Secondly, you can salt your fresh tomatoes and parsley for about 20 minutes before adding to the final salad (drain off the excess liquid before assembling the salad). Lastly, you can assemble your salad, dress it, let it sit for 20-30 minutes, and then drain the entire salad in a colander before transferring back to a serving plate.
