The dressing in this recipe makes this taste far superior to any prepared shop bought couscous.

Deliciously different, simple to make, and colorful ~ this is wonderful recipe. After sampling the final dish, I did go back and add a bit of garlic and a dash of thyme, just to give the flavors a bit more depth. I also may reduce the water ever so slightly next time to keep the couscous very distinct. But there will definitely be a next time; I love this salad! Thanks so much for posting.
