South Portage resident Sally Beck’s recipe for tabbouleh is May’s recipe feature. This is a favorite Beck family recipe and is similar to a dish that Sally and husband Herb used to enjoy years ago at a Kalamazoo-area Mediterranean restaurant. Katie Seifert, the Becks’ daughter, describes the dish as “healthy and refreshing” and one that the family makes often in the summertime.
