keto tabbouleh salad ingredients

I was so happy that nearly all the fresh ingredients came from my garden when making this recipe today. But truly it is a simple salad that only requires 7 ingredients.

All you need is parsley, mint, spring onion, tomato, lemon, hemp hearts and hemp oil (or oil of choice).

HOT TIP – Check out Vasse Valley products. I am in love with their products. Even the packaging is gorgeous. (This is just my honest review and I was not paid in any way to recommend them).

how to make keto tabbouleh salad

The keto tabbouleh salad is pretty easy to make. It is pretty much a chop it and mix it. It is a keto salad that is ready in minutes. I have included a Thermomix keto tabbouleh recipe as well for all our thermi-fans!

You could add some diced cucumber and any other fresh herbs like chives or coriander too.

what to serve it with

Tabbouleh goes great with so many other foods. Pair it with a steak and sauteed mushrooms, or a keto chicken kebab. How good does mine pictured below look?

What is so good about tabbouleh is that it can be used in hot dishes too. Sprinkle over any curry, stew or casserole. Also using it up in soup, stew, keto broth etc is a great idea.

I would serve this with our Buttery Beef Casserole, Keto Butter Chicken or the Saffron Chicken Korma!

  • 1 cup parsley I use flat-leaf (continental parsley) See Note 1
  • 12 mint leaves
  • 1 spring onion See Note 2
  • 6 cherry tomatoes or 1 small tomato
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts See Note 3
  • 1-2 tbsp hemp oil or olive oil, See Note 4
  • Zest and juice of half a lemon



  • Finely chop parsley and mint and place into a mixing bowl
  • Thinly slice spring onion and add to mixing bowl.

  1.  I use a flat leaf parsley. The curly variety I am just not a fan of. Chop both the leaves and stems if preferred.
  2.  A spring onion is a scallion or shallot (by other names).
  3. Hemp hearts (seeds) are available in most supermarkets. I LOVE Vasse Valley hemp hearts. Only newly discovered to me but omg in love with their products.
  4. Hemp oil is delicious but either extra virgin or avocado oil would be a good substitute.
  5. Tabbouleh is best made and eaten on the day. However, this salad can be kept in the fridge for a couple of days. If it doesn’t look so appetising after a couple of days add it to any stock, soup, stew, casserole or keto pasta dish.
