      This was a nice couscous but I think I will stick to method of pouring the hot liquid over the couscous and then cover than pouring into the hot liquid, I seem to always get a fluffier result with the 1st. As we don't care for mint I used all parsley and had to sub sultanas for the grapes, and toasted almond flakes for the pine nuts and I only used half the dressing mix as I thought it would be too sloppy with it all and I scaled back to 2/3 cup of cous which as the only side to Chicken Satay by weekend cooker was plenty for 3 of us. Thank you ratherbeswimmin'. made for Bargain Basement.
