Singing about salad

Now that's what I call food-related music

Thank you to the worldly contributor who led me to this . . . From the man that brought you Humus: the rap, we now have the Tabbouleh Song! It's a real crowd-pleaser - Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Libya, you're all in there. And he even manages to (sort of) rhyme "tabbouleh" with "booty", which is, in my mind, brilliant. If you know of any other food songs or recipe raps, please let me know.
