Tabbouleh with Avocado

posted on: Monday, September 29, 2008

This is a little something I made this weekend because of an abundance of avocados as well as tomatoes. I didn't have pita bread so we ate it with brie cheese and crackers at a friend's house while watching the debate. It's nice having good food while listening to McCain and Obama it helps control my rage. I'm going to have to whip up something amazing this weekend so that I don't go totally mad listening to the vice president candidate debate. Until then I'll eat my left over tabbouleh.

  • juice of two lemons
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1/2 cup mint
  • 1/2 cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped leek
  • 1 small onion
  • salt and pepper to taste
