What's a vegan to do?



My co-worker and regular recipe tester Mary T. recently found herself at a wedding where she had requested a vegan meal. She couldn't believe it when they showed up with a pile of cantaloupe and a pile of tabbouleh.

Per the waiter's instruction, she mixed it together and dove in. Sound crazy? I agree.

But Mary swears that it's now a favorite of her and her husband, Matt, who's not even vegetarian, let alone vegan.

On a recently night they filled a giant pasta bowl of the mixture and killed it, with the help of some pita bread.

I've never been much of a picky eater so I'm willing to give it a try! I mean, I've grown to love strawberry jelly on grilled cheese, so why not give this a shot, right?

If you try it, let me know what you think! On that note, if you try any of the recipes I post here, I would love to hear your comments on what you think of them.

Okay, I know I sound like a freak, but I swear, it's actually good! It's a strange combination of sweet and sour that really can't be duplicated. Not that this gives the dish credibility, as my husband will happily eat anything, but we easily ate the entire bowl featured in Kirsten's picture in the amount of time it took to watch one episode of Supernatural.
