This was great! I omitted the feta cheese, and used walnuts instead of pine nuts. Also, I wasn't sure if you meant dried oregano or fresh, and all I had was dried, so I used the given amount of dried oregano, even though it looked like a bit much! However, it all came together in the end, with the crunch of the walnuts complimenting the kidney beans, tomatoes, and cousous to perfection! Thanks stephanie!

I really enjoyed this dish, it was very light and refreshing. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star is because my kids weren't really fans and my husband was indifferent. I will still make this again, but to take for lunch instead of for the whole family. Thanks for the recipe!
