Congratulations, Brendan, on going fatfree!  I'm sure you'll feel better for

<<But I have a question. I have a box of tabouleh mix which calls for adding
olive oil. What should I substitute for the oil?>>

Here are a couple of things I've used to replace the oil:

1) fat-free Italian salad dressing.  Also adds a nice kick to the tabouleh.

2) (and some people will think this is gross, but. . .) the liquid from a
can of chick peas or white beans.  It has the thickness that you need to
replace the oil.

If you want, I can post a fat-free tabouli recipe that is WAY better than
the mix.
