    GaylaJ's Note:

    Delightful mix of flavors from Prevention magazine. Although I submitted the cooking directions for the couscous as given, please check the directions on your particular package. The cooking directions on my box were different so I followed the package instructions, rather than the recipe, for cooking the couscous. The balsamic vinegar does darken the dish, so use white balsamic if you prefer. I have never used it, though, so I am unsure what taste difference there would be.

      This is sooo good. I don't really pay attention to the proportions. Sometimes I throw in some greens like arugula. This is definetly a favorite. Good combination of sweet, herby, sour, creamy...I could probably eat this every day. And it is way too fast and easy to make.

      Great, easy recipe! I was out of couscous, so I used wild rice and added some of French Tart's Preserved Lemons (209590). It was a delicious combination! Thanks for sharing this!

      Oh, man, I died and went to carb heaven. Not a fan of mint so I skipped that and I found the dish sweet enough without the honey. Incredible,Gayla.
