    Chez Michelle's Note:

    My sister made this at one of our family gatherings with #185976 (Middle Eastern Beef Kabobs) and it is wonderful side dish. You can pre-chop and pre-measure prior to a dinner party and have it ready very quickly. I used a nice shaped bowl (that was a good portion size) and used that for the mold :) Nice flavor to enhance the main dish :) Gourmet July 1991
