I cut this back to 2 servings and made as directed minus the cucumber which I can't say that I love. Oh Yeah, and I had to use dried mint as I haven't seen any fresh yet this year (1.5 tsp's there of). I know that the fresh mint would have been nicer but when it comes down to it, you have to work with what you have. I still loved it a lot and the pistachio/apricot combo is stellar. So glad I found this for the NA/ME Couscous and Rice tag (Spring 2014).
