tabouleh salad This is kind of a dip, kind of a salad, as it can be easily scooped into a pita chip. It also makes a great accompaniment to grilled veggie or meat kabobs. Feel free to experiment with different herb combinations to change the flavors. This is a great recipe because it can easily be doubled and you don't have to stick to the measurements on the veggies. Just throw in more of whatever you like. Thanks to my vegan friend Shannon Schwab of Las Vegas for this recipe.

These recipes are just a few
of many great easy vegetarian dishes for parties. Take advantage of the
fact that you have the farmer's markets at your disposal to play up the
role of fresh vegetables in all of your meals. Instead of the same old
carrots, broccoli and celery on your veggie tray, why not offer jicama,
zucchini and radishes? The key to pleasing the crowd you are feeding is
to keep it interesting. So, spread the veggie love and dip into
something delicious today!
