      This was delicious and beautiful. It looked like I took a great deal of trouble to make, but was very easy and quick to prepare. I loved the taste of the apricots in this slightly sweet side dish. It tasted just as good cold the next day.

      I liked the dish, for my personal tastes, I think I 'll use chicken broth next time (I think it will provide enough saltiness, without me having to add salt). I also added some of the juice of the lemon to off set some of the sweetness of the dried fruit. I really enjoyed the couscous and will make it again.
