    dawnie2u's Note:

    This is an wonderful salad for a potluck or picnic. It is gorgeous to look at and delicious to taste. It is very forgiving, add or adjust ingredients or seasonings as you desire. You might want to add a tad more vinegar depending on how tart you like your salads. I adapted this salad from a cous cous recipe from Silvia Lehrer/and Charlie from another site. You could add some cooked shrimp to this salad to make it a little more substantial.

      This is a great salad! With all the crunchy fresh veggies it is a perfect summer salad. I did decrease the amount of garbanzo beans since they are not my favorite, but otherwise made as is. Made for I Recommend Tag.

      With one exception, I followed your recipe on down ~ However, since my other half loves garbanzo beans & I don't particularly, I compromised & cut the amount of that ingredient in half, & we were both quite satisfied with the results! Great combo of flavors in this salad! Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement recipe tag]
