Instant Pot Tabbouleh Salad is a refreshing dish that’s light and lovely. This salad is perfect for a pot luck or any Summer picnic. No worries about spoilage because there’s no mayo or dairy ingredients. In fact, my vegan friends, this one is a vegan dish.
Hi folks! Connie here with a fantastic new recipe for your pressure cooker. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to use an Instant Pot, since November actually. If you’re a fan of this miracle gadget, you can imagine the withdrawals I’ve been going through without mine.
A very dear friend of mine, who’s also an Instant Pot Pothead was kind enough to help me out and get me a new one. Yay!! Since I don’t have all of my equipment back yet, I am a little limited on making videos but it’s coming. Most of you who have kept up with Happy Belly Foodie know me and you know I’m going through the big D. Bummer huh? Well, actually not so much, except for my equipment being tied up and held for ransom, lol. Some things are just so silly like that.
Anyway, life always goes on and me, being a rose colored glasses kinda gal, have just a few lighting things to work out and I’ll be up and running, good as new. Hoo-freaking-ray! Right? Cause the videos are the fun part of this gig! I mean, that snazzy music along with cooking makes everybody happy. I am the Happy Belly Foodie, after all.
Another mention I wanted to say is that I’ll be doing volunteer cooking demonstrations here in my neck of the woods. So if you’re in the Cincinnati tri-state area and you want to see the Happy Belly Foodie do her thing, send me an email at Happybellyfoodie@hotmail.com and I’ll give you a schedule of where you can come join the fun. Hey, its free! And who doesn’t love free fun?
That’s all for now, my fine foodie folks. I hope you’ll give this lovely little dish a try and let me know how much you loved it. (Cause you know you will.)
Till next time ~ much love, Connie
