      Delicious, made for my lunch, cheated a little & used shredded roast chicken & minced basil in a tube, added some fresh parsley for a hint of fresh. Very tasty and one I will make again for certain. Thanks for posting!

      This was just wonderful! Love the fresh flavors and lightness of the dish. The second day we ate it I added a little extra olive oil, salt, and pepper, and a handful of pinenuts. Great stuff and so healthy.

      I was going to add to my origional post but I think I will just redo...I make this often. The whole family loves it. I have also passed the recipe on to friends who never would have tried something like this but love it. I use white balsamic vig and usually double the couscous but not the chickpeas. Everything else I just sort of feel my way through. I needed to bring this from summer to fall so I left out the tomatoes, changed the vin to apple cider vin and added diced apple. Everyone except DH loved it...now I make it same as usual but use a can of roasted tomatoes for the fresh and everyone loves that too...I've also used balsamic vin with good reviews...all in all this is a great, easy, cheap meal that is my main go to dish...Its also great for picnics. Just toss together in a container and take it with you. I've also packed this in my kid's bentos b4...
