Loved it!!! Made exactly as written, except we added a bit of turmeric for some color (and we like the taste!). This was so easy to make and so fresh. I can see us serving this with many types of food. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT9, for team Gourmet Goddesses
This was easy to make, light and tasty. Might add a little more seasoning next time, but I like things zippier. Made for ZWT 9.
A nice couscous salad that was good. I used mint from the garden and enjoyed the feta too! Made for ZWT 2013.
