    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    I found this one on allrecipes and tweaked it a bit. It's a wonderful salad for a cookout or potluck, and leftovers keep well (it makes quite a large batch). Don't let the long ingredient list scare you off, it's actually very simple to make. For any ingredients with a range of amounts, the least amount is what I like to use, the greatest amount is what the original recipe calls for. This is a vegan-friendly recipe if veggie broth is substituted for chicken broth.

      I took this to a BBQ on a hot day, and was really happy to have a salad with no mayo to spoil in the heat! I loved everything that was in it, but would have liked a bit more dressing to spread the flavor over the veggies and pasta. Also, I added about a teaspoon of salt before serving. Made for ZWT8.

      Made exactly as written and was very pleased with the final result. I also felt very healthy eating it (with no guilt)! Made for ZWT5.

      This was very good, and would be great for a potluck. I used whole wheat couscous and only a tablespoon of oil. I also halved the green onions, and used 2-3 times the cumin, parsley and vinegar. Very healthy!
