    Kishka's Note:

    This will seem like a lot of ingredients, but it's not as much work as you'd think. It is a great dish to prepare in hot weather - virtually no cooking involved! From The blessed Barefoot Contessa.

      I've made this at least five times now, and I plan to keep making it! It's a good company side dish and popular at potlucks. Every time it's a little different, as I use what's on hand. I usually use garam masala instead of the curry powder and turmeric; I don't really need the butter in the couscous; I don't add salt; and I use either red onions or scallions if I don't happen to have both. I would say the fresh parsley, good olive oil and yogurt are essential. It's ok without the slivered almonds, but much nicer with. A flexible dish that is sure to please.

      I had to make a few substitutions and omissions to accomodate my (lack of) ingredients - including the couscous! I had everything but the couscous and the water ready to go in the morning, then when I went to get the couscous out at dinner time, there was only about a tablespoon left in the jar, lol! So, happy substitution, I used millet instead. I also omitted the butter - because I forgot, used pistachios instead of almonds, raisins instead of currants, onion powder to replace the red onion and the scallion, and dried cilantro to replace the parsley. This was STILL a great, tasty recipe. What a wonderful mixture of flavors. Thank you!
