    This is a recipe from Cooking Light. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks good! You can use basil, cilantro or mint instead of the sage.

      Light and refreshing. Great to bring to a BBQ. Great the nextday. Would be great in a lunchbox. You could add olives and feta but it's great as is.

      Made this for Fall PAC '07. I haven't had much experience with couscous so I asked my DH and BIL to rate this for me since they are very familiar with it being from Israel. They give this recipe 4 stars. And said that they would definately eat this again if I made it. I made it as written with the exception of the red bell pepper. (I had green bell peppers in my garden and the red ones were $3 each at the store--so green it was ;-)) This was a good recipe and will make again. Thanks for posting.

      Thanks for saving me some typing. This is my all time favorite couscous recipe. When I make it for lunch instead of a side dish, I add feta cheese. I've found that depending on the couscous you use, the amount of chicken broth will vary, so read the directions on the package.
