I put a bit more lemon juice, and I think it could stand even a bit more than that, but then I really love the taste of lemon. I served this as a side dish to Moroccan Chicken (#15580) and everyone loved it. Thanks!

This made a nice quick side. I forgot the pecans but did add a little lemon zest to the dish. Quick and easy fix for couscous.

This was good. i think the addition of lemon zest would be nice. I'm not sure the olive oil is necessary. THE PICKY ONE didn't like it. And I threw in a fistful of cooked garbanzos. Yum. Thanks!
