      Excellent. I already had cooked couscous on hand as I'd made Couscous Basics, so I just added the cinnamon and proceeded from there. All the proportions were spot-on for my taste and the dressing was very nice if a little too liquidy. I think next time I'll go with just the orange juice and olive oil and leave the wine out altogether as it just made everything sort of soupy. Served with Chicken Shawarma.

      This was a great salad, with nice flavors. Loved the touch of cinnamon in it.

      I made this tonight to go with some chicken wings with fruity flair to them. This went great. The kids loved it. I think I prefer the couscous salad with the corn, black beans, and onions myself but the kids would not eat that one. Made for ZWT 07
