    Oh dear! Mint is listed in the ingredients but I forgot to mention adding it at the end. I’ll change it now – blame it on my neck injury! Thanks for pointing it out Kit.

    Uma – you didn’t mention the mint! I always add the chopped mint at the very end just before serving as it can go discoloured and mushy if you put it in too soon. The parsley doesn’t matter quite so much if it’s added earlier. This tip can be important if you’re taking a tabbouleh to a barbecue or whatever as a guest dish, or preparing one for yourselves in advance. Add the mint at the end! Would you agree?
