Excellent side dish! This was so quick to make and so yummy. Our family loves couscous and I love lemon so it was perfect recipe. The directions were so easy to follow. Thank you Sonya01

So simple & quick to make.<br/>I didn't have fresh parsley, so I just used 1TBSP of dried. The skin on my lemon was very marked so I just squeezed out 1TBSP of juice which gave a very subtle hint of lemon.<br/>It went beautifully with lamb.
