      I'm voting here for KEBABS, because I can't recommend my own post.

      1. does kebab's include all types of meat/fish/veg./fruit?

          when I nominated it, that is what I was thinking, all types of stuff, skewered on a kebab, that way anyone can play no matter what their dietary restrictions/preferences.

            You can all probably guess by now what my response is going to be to this question! I always think that the more specific we are in defining a dish, the more comparing and learning we can do. It's hard to compare a fruit skewer with a meat kebab. I do define kebabs as meat. Anything else on a skewer is just, well, stuff on a skewer. But, as always, people can, and do, interpret the dish of the month in their own fashion!

              This was sorta my thought, although I might include vegetables for the vegetarians out there... I would say as long as it's meant to be a main course it counts.

              1. re: L.Nightshade

                I hardly have been cooking along but follow the thread and my impression is that many people are not all that interested in exploring a dish in depth. That is the reason that some suggest combining two dishes or pushing the boundaries to the limit. IMHO there is no such dish as fruit kebabs. Sure, you could put anything on a stick but it will not be called kebab. My grandkids call chicken drumsticks "chicken on a stick" :)

                Last night I made very tasty turkey kebabs that I learnt at CIA class last weekend. I subbed quinoa for bulgur to accommodate GF eaters and upped species a bit - will post the recipe if "kebabs" win.

            2. Voting is now closed for the July DOTM. The winner is:

              Get your skewers ready, the posting thread will be up by tomorrow.
