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!
Loved this salad with Mediterranean Tilapia Pockets. Easy and such great flavors.
I loved this fresh tasting couscous salad! Perfect combination of ingredients and flavors and it was so easy. I made no modifications. I'll definitely be making this again! Thanks!
this was good, but i think i'd like it even more without the feta...and, i love feta. i did omit the pine nuts since i didn't have them. overall, a good dish. thanks for posting
An interesting salad. I was looking for something to make using kidney beans and came across this salad. I had never come across the combination of couscous and kidney beans before. I followed the recipe except for omitting the pine nuts (didn't have any) and I used Danish Feta which has a softer texture and tastes not unlike a mild goats cheese. It really was delicious and everyone commented on how good it tasted. I will make it again.
I needed an easy recipe that didn't need to be kept hot or cold so when I was really excited when I came across it. I made it exactly according to the recipe except used fat-free feta and was probably a little short on how much feta I had on hand. It was so delicious! I made the couscous thenight before and then just threw the rest together...it sat for over an hour at room temperature and was perfect because the flavors had a chance to marry and being at room temp really made the flavors stand out. This is going to become a go-to recipe for potlucks or get-togethers where I need an easy side!
Everybody loved it! My daughter had a blast helping make it. We used chickpeas instead of kidney beans. Will make again, thanks!! :)
Great dish! I wholeheartedly agree that it's great with chickpeas in place of the kidney beans, and with the addition of high quality black olives.
