Quick, easy summer meal. I've made couscous salad before, using a different recipe. I was looking for something I could make with items I had on hand and this was a winner.
Very good. I didn't have any mint and I think that was needed. It's a little bland.
This was a flavorful, easy to make salad. We served as a side to Dolmathes. I had to use shallot in place of red onions, because I was out. We easily halved the recipe ingredients to make a smaller amount. Made for Sun and Spice 2013
Super nice twist on a cous cous salad...I used less mint and more parsley than indicated in the recipe b/c i thought equal proportions would be too minty for my liking. The only thing i added was diced tomatoes (which i added at the table so the leftover salad would keep better without tomatoes). If i were serving this as a meal on it's own I would also add feta cheese! Yum, thanks for a great recipe!
I added garlic and used this delicious salad as a filling for pita pockets! Use both fresh mint and fresh parsley from the garden, too! I wish I knew what indigo lentils are. They sound delish! Thanks for sharing! cg ;)
Like Kumquat, I added garlic and cut down on the olive oil--served with roast chicken and a cherry tomato salad--Lovely meal! Thanks, Mom.
Terrific tasting and very easy to make. I made it with regular brown lentils from a bag and was very pleased with the way it came out. Soaking the onions for a while reduced the sharp taste. I added a minced garlic clove which I soaked along with the onion. I recommend adding 1 or 2 garlic cloves according to taste, soaked along with the onion or not if you like the bite. Other than that I only used about 1 tablespoon olive oil. I served this with an impromptu grape tomato and feta cheese salad. Great supper, thanks Happy Mom!
