"Kabbouleh” (kale + tabbouleh) was popularized in the United States in 2013 and 2014. “Yummy making Kabbouleh salad for lunch tomorrow- a combo of quinoa and kale to be #GlutenFree - so yummy!” was cited on Twitter by Kathy Smart, who posted a recipe on Naturally Savvy.
“‘Kabbouleh’ at @SQIRLLA—kale salad w/ cauliflower, sumac, Aleppo, currants, & puffed rice. #vegan #vegetarian #LA” was cited on Twitter on January 24, 2014. Jessica Koslow, the chef at SQIRL in Los Angeles, California, had a “Crispy Rice Salad” on the menu that came to be called “kabbouleh.” Koslow has called her kabbouleh a “kale salad made with puffed rice and cauliflower instead of couscous,” and the dish was featured in Bon Appétit magazine in June 2014, and on the blogs Food52 and Slate in October and November 2015.
Kale or boerenkool is a vegetable of the plant species Brassica oleracea. It has green or purple leaves, in which the central leaves do not form a head. It is considered to be closer to wild cabbage than most domesticated forms of vegetables.
Tabbouleh (Arabic: تبولة tabūlah; also tabouleh or tab(b)ouli) is an Arabian vegetarian dish (sometimes considered a salad) traditionally made of tomatoes, finely chopped parsley, mint, bulgur and onion, and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Some variations add garlic or lettuce, or use couscous instead of bulgur.

Jessica Koslow’s Crispy Brown Rice “Kabbouleh”
by Genius Recipes • October 28, 2015
Author Notes: That same crackly rice that cultures across the world hold on high—the well-toasted bottom layer of rice in a good paella, tahdig, or bibimbap—doesn’t have to come only at the end of a perfectly made dish. It can be broken apart and distilled for us to eat whenever we like. This is probably a trick you’ll want to bust out for dinner parties where you want to show off, and feel joy and rapture with others. But you could also make it just for you, with extra to have on hand—just keep the components separate till eating time so the rice stays crunchy. And once you have a jar of this gold, where else could you use your crackly puffed rice? On top of any salad, any bowl of sundry grains and vegetables. Your eggs, your noodles, your yogurt.

This Crispy Rice Salad Is What Rice Tastes Like When It’s Living Its Best Life
By Kristen Miglore
In this case, it’s in a souped-up grain salad of sorts. Bon Appetit called it kabbouleh, a portmanteau stemming from tabbouleh made with kale, but it’s really its own creation entirely, straight out of the mind of Jessica Koslow, the founder of Sqirl, which is maybe the most famous breakfast and lunch and toast restaurant (and jam workshop) on Instagram. There, it’s just called crispy rice salad.
