This sounds like a good recipe in which to use dates, as it is authentically Middle Eastern. I have been making pita sandwiches stuffed with traditional tabouli salad for years and years and everyone thought I was nuts to stuff bread with wheat! I have modified my own recipe for it several times and next time I make some, I intend to incorporate some dates and other ingredients like pine nuts, and see how it comes out. If it works, I will happily submit my own recipe to the California Date Commission and perhaps they will include it on this web site. Thanks for this interesting recipe, which has inspired me to create my own unique version of the same basic dish. Sincerely, Margaret Fex
