    flower7's Note:

    I got this delicious recipe from a co-worker after she brought it to a potluck. It was definitely one of the hits of the day! Originally from Southern Living. Update Dec '09: I've now made this multiple times since originally posting; it is one of my absolute favorites for a potluck! I usually double it but find that if you cook double the amount of couscous at once, it can get gummy, so I cook it in two separate batches (cook one then use the same pot to do the next), then add the rest of the (doubled) ingredients.

      THIS IS FABULOUS!!! I have been making it all summer long! Everyone; my vegan client, vegetarians, and everyone else absolutely raves about it. For my vegan, I add some quinoa to the mix and she loves it! Thank you! Thank you!

      Interesting combination of flavors. Would be a good side with grilled turkey breast. I think the cinnamon and cranberry combination threw off my family. They usually love couscous salads but didn't care for this. Enjoyed trying it, though. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      This is really simple. I didn't have almonds or mint but even without them this was very tasty. I tasted it hot and room temperature and I think I prefer it to sit a while, meld all the flavors together and serve room temp. Thanks for the recipe :)
