    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Bon Appetit, June 1996. For an even healthier version, use whole wheat couscous instead. Accompaniment to chicken, shrimp, grilled tofu, etc. Makes a large serving ideal for your next picnic or potluck!

      I really loved this after adding a light sprinkle of Splenda. It was all there flavor wise but I thought that it needed just s touch of sweet to enhance the apricot, cinnamon and allspice. I didn't have the fresh basil but would love to try it when summer comes around. This was very much enjoyed :D.
