Perfect Picnic Recipes: Grape & Quinoa Tabbouleh Wrap

This is the fourth post in our recipe series for the month of April, perfect picnic recipes from Kelsi Windmiller!

Tabbouleh salads are a favorite of mine, and they are perfect to wrap up in a tortilla and take out for a picnic. Today I would like to share my recipe variation with you – there is a good amount of chopping involved, but it is a very simple recipe. Be sure to use quality ingredients! Generally, tabbouleh is made with fresh herbs and a grain. Fresh herbs really make this recipe stand out – you will never want to use dried oregano again! The sliced grapes add a burst of sweetness and the quinoa and chickpeas make it hearty enough for a meal.

Let your chickpeas and quinoa cool to room temperature before you begin mixing the tabbouleh. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, chickpeas, grapes, onion, mint, oregano, parsley, and crumbled feta cheese. Toss the salad with the lemon juice and olive oil. Have a taste to see if you need to add salt (sometimes feta eliminates the need for it). Roll the tabbouleh in tortillas, just like you would a burrito. Place the wraps in a hot skillet and press down for a few minutes on each side to toast and seal the tortilla. Wrap in parchment and take it on a picnic. Enjoy!
