Very good. I used kidney beans instead of black beans (I just didn't have any) and vidalias instead of red onion. Also, I didn't use the jalapenos; my garlic oil is really spicy, so this had a good amount of heat. I added a small tomato, seeded and diced, but this salad would be equally as nice without it. I'll be making this salad often in the summer. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for sharing this great recipe. We make couscous salad a lot and this was a really tasty way of making it. I forgot to soak my black beans so I used kidney beans instead. I also added some vegetable stock to the couscous when cooking for extra flavour (I always do this) and I added a clove of minced garlic, as I had to make up for just having normal olive oil. The lime juice adds a lovely fresh taste to it. I did use the optional jalapeno and also added a little freshly ground black pepper at the very end. This is a keeper. :D
