    Chef #457852 - bggio's Note:

    This cous cous is the best side dish type of cous cous I have ever had the chance to experience. This is best with spicy lamb sausage (merguez) or grilled beef and lamb.

      I served this with lamb chops, a perfect companion. I had a hard time leaving it in the fridge for 2 hours, had to keep sampling. I strained mint and grapefruit mixture into couscous, but my garlic was strained out, so I added additional garlic to recipe.

      This is an excellent couscous I did it as suggested and as a side to grilled lamb. it was the perfect mix with grilled lamb. This would be great in a buffet with many different salads as well
