This is awesome! I thought I had the olives and feta but found out last minute I did not. I added some capers instead and it turned out delicious. I will definitely be making this often. Thanks for posting!

This was excellent. I omitted the olives because we don't like them and it was still great!

This was incredible! Great side, great warm or cold. Went very well with Cedar Plank Salmon with Lemon-Dill topping (#174649). Thanks for sharing.

I made this vegan with veggie broth and no feta. It was very good and agree that it tastes better on days 2 and 3. We had it as a side salad one night and then used it as a wrap filling another night. Since I didn't use the salty feta, I used the salty kalamatas and it worked out well. Thanks for sharing.

This was super yummy! I'm always looking for new unique sides and I wasn't disappointed with this recipe. I made a full recipe and it fed 4 and had enough leftovers for lunch for the entire week so, be warned, the quantity is large! I also used block feta and cut into cubes which I liked better than crumbles. I recommend using regular black olives... we used kalamatas and they were WAY too strong in this for our tastes even chopped up.

Update-4/11/2012- I've since made this recipe MANY times. I've also made it with veggie stock to make it completely vegetarian and taken it to many a potluck. It's always one of the first things gone and the longer it sits, the tastier it gets. Lots of flavor and fun to change out the "add in" ingredients. The dressing is really flavorful and adding the oregano in with the couscous gives it great flavor. Thanks for another great recipe Kitten!

This was excellent! I swapped freshly grated Parmesan for the feta and Kalamata olives for the black olives. Omitted the onion and chick peas. Added diced sweet bell pepper. Thanks for a great recipe!

Thanks Kittencal for a really great tasty recipe. I didn't have Chick Peas on hand but used a can of Mixed beans instead. (Red Kidney Beans, Chick Peas, Romano Beans, Black Eyed Peas) I only made half the recipe and it gave me enough for four generous portions. I served it with baked porkchops. It was a nice addition to our meal, I will be making it again. :)

Needed something fast for dinner so I made this and served with carrots&brussels sprouts side. I used vegetable broth and some garlic salt, and otherwise lowered the amount of olive oil. Okay, maybe it could have used some more seasoning, but left as is it had a fresh and clean taste. If you can afford the extra calories, add a bit more cheese:) I didn't, if only because I couldn't find low-fat feta in the store that day.

Very good, and very forgiving if you keep a couple things out or make substitutions. I had this warm as soon as it was mixed, and cold from the fridge later on, and it tastes great both ways. I agree with the 4 servings if this is the main dish (which is how we have it), but would be about double that if used as a side dish. Thanks Kittencal, you have yet to disappoint me :-)
