Simple Chicken and Feta Tabouleh Salad

My friend Jalal posted an amazing video a few month ago of his mother making Tabouleh Salad from scratch.  It is an art and from what I have heard she is a wonderful cook.  If you have the time I recommend checking out her video and trying it from scratch (  Unfortunately I left work late today and had a big craving for Tabouleh but did not have the time or energy to go to the grocery story and then make Tabouleh from scratch. I technically "cheated" and purchased the Tabouleh from Trader Joes but then added my own touches and ingredients to it. It turned out so good I thought it would share this simple, yet tasty summer meal. Enjoy!
