      Delicious! The spices really, really shine in this couscous, and all the flavors are subtle, but really come together into something that I think might just be magic. Thanks for sharing this!

      Just for the 'halibut' Igot out my ol' mortar & pestle & although I didn't use it on all the spices in this recipe, I did grind down cumin! As enjoyable as it was, for the most part I'll just stick with the pre-packaged ground sipces that are so easy to come by! Made this recipe ALMOST as given, but I did like what JanuaryBride did when she made it (adding some dried apricots) & since we do like apricots . . . Absolutely great tasting salad, & something I'll be making again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of the ZWT6 challenges]

      This was dinner tonight along with Coriander and Green Olive Hummus Recipe and pita chips for a delicious and healthy dinner. I liked everything about this salad - the colours, the texture, the brightness, the sweetness - it was all happening. Nicely seasoned and just enough acid from the orange juice. Thanks.
