Delicious, refeshing and summery and a great change from the standard green salad we usually have. I used quinoa, basil and spinach fresh from the garden and fresh , diced tomatoes. My olives were green ones stuffed with fetta - 2 ingredients there for the price of one !!!

Very yummy! This is my first time trying some African food and it was so yummy. Most of the ingredients are my favourite, so I knew I was going to like the recipe even before I made it! I had to leave out the basil because the basil in the supermarket was wilted, so I used some dried basil. Thank you Tisme for a healthy change.

This is delicious! I used fresh tomatoes instead of sun dried and a bit more spinach. It is great - a nice summer salad and will make great leftovers. Thanks for the post! ZWT 3

I have NEVER heard my oldest daughter (age 17) rave on and on about ANY salad...yet she loved this one from start to finish! And that's saying something because she doesn't even like couscous... (: The blend of flavors and textures in this salad should NOT be missed! I would leave off some of the "dressing" next time as it did over-power just a bit. But is was still very yummy.

We had this with some sliced grilled eggplant added to it. I didn't have "semi-dry" toms, so I just used the regular sun dried tomotoes, which I'm assuming wouldn't make much difference at all. I did add some olive oil and a little balsamic to the cous cous and stired it through. Otherwise, this makes a great substantial salad. This is easily a summer favorite. The dressing could be used also with grilled meat. Delish!

We loved this! Thought I had couscous left over from move to new apartment, but didn't, so I substituted rice. I also substituted fresh red bell pepper instead of roasted, because I prefer the taste. Not sure what marinated semi-dried sun-dried tomatoes are so I used dry packed. I also subbed Greek yogurt instead of regular (natural). Added salt and pepper, and this made one great recipe with little effort. Thanks Tisme!
