This is the best salad ever!!! Made it once for a Canada Day celebration and everyone wanted the recipe. I have been asked several times to make it again! I have also used Quinia (sp?) and added tomatoes. FANTASTIC thanks for the recipe.
Thanks for rounding out our Labor Day party's assortment of salads. This one sure added some pretty color to the table and tasted great. Before making I read several helpful reviews and decreased beans to one can and added a tad more spices (a little chili and garlic powder, smoked ground red pepper). Such a nice complement of colors and flavors--wish I had discovered this recipe years ago. Better late than never....thanks, yooper!
I've recently discovered couscous and I'm now on the lookout for new recipes. I figured I would make this to serve with Baked Salsa Chicken Breast and I am so glad that I did! The lime and cumin flavor came through, but it was not overpowering. The colors of the added veggies and beans made for a beautiful presentation; even my daughter commented that it was a "pretty food." Everyone ate their veggies without complaining! Thank you for posting. I am going to print this one and add it to our "Family Favorites" cookbook so I can make it more often.
Delicious, light, healthy and fresh! Even my kids (5 yrs and 1 yr) love it! I like to add a little more vinegar than it calls for. Tastes even better the next day!
I have made this couscous salad twice before, and both times my husband and our dinner guests were blown away by how fresh and delicious it was. I love that you can add slight variations to the types of veggies based on what you have on hand, i.e. red onion instead of green, or adding jalapenos. One change I made that I thought added great flavor was to put about 1/4 cup of chopped veggies (onion, pepper, jalapeno) into the broth while it was boiling. Added a great flavor to the couscous itself!
Last night I made this salad with Cilantro Chicken by Denise! (Cilantro Chicken), and my husband said, "You know I love your cooking, so you've got to know what it means when I say this is one the best meals you've ever made." Can you ask for a better compliment, especially on a meal that was fairly simple?? :D :D
I loved this. It's so pretty to serve. I added extra seasonings and some spice to kick it up.
Simple and easy with nice melding of flavors. I served alongside a recipe for creamy spinach enchiladas. I also halved the recipe with great results. Thanks!
I made this for a barbecue and received mixed reviews from the folks there. However, I loved it so I'm giving it five stars. It's fresh and light. I'm going to have the leftovers with some grilled chicken breasts tomorrow. Will definitely make again. Thanks!
