I had never had couscous before so I didn't know what to expect... WOW was this DELICIOUS! I could not stop myself from eating it, and my husband (who has had couscous many times before) said it was the best he'd ever tried. The only thing I changed was I left out the cucumber because I don't like it. This one is definitely a keeper for us!
I was surprised that something so simple could be so good. I didn't even consider adding an entire teaspoon of pepper - I used 1/4 teaspoon. I also used 1/2 tsp of salt and will increase it to 3/4 tsp in the future.
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. :)
This was very easy to make and yummy! A nice couscous side to my BBQ!
