      It is recommended that if you make this salad ahead of time, add the olive oil and lemon juice right before ready to serve.

      A very refreshing couscous sald...nice and lemmony! Would be great served alongside BBQ meat/chicken. Made exactly as directed this time but would reduce the water by 1/4 of a cup next time(personal preference). Yummo, thanks for sharing!

      Delicious, and made as written apart from reducing the water by 1/4 cup (I made half a recipe).
