"I found this one on allrecipes and tweaked it a bit. It's a wonderful salad for a cookout or potluck, and leftovers keep well (it makes quite a large batch). Don't let the long ingredient list scare you off, it's actually very simple to make. For any ingredients with a range of amounts, the least amount is what I like to use, the greatest amount is what the original recipe calls for. This is a vegan-friendly recipe if veggie broth is substituted for chicken broth."

"I took this to a BBQ on a hot day, and was really happy to have a salad with no mayo to spoil in the heat! I loved everything that was in it, but would have liked a bit more dressing to spread the flavor over the veggies and pasta. Also, I added about a teaspoon of salt before serving. Made for ZWT8."
"Made exactly as written and was very pleased with the final result. I also felt very healthy eating it (with no guilt)! Made for ZWT5."
"This was very good, and would be great for a potluck. I used whole wheat couscous and only a tablespoon of oil. I also halved the green onions, and used 2-3 times the cumin, parsley and vinegar. Very healthy!"
"This was wonderful with grilled chicken tonight. I mad 4 servings and skipped the jalapeno. The rest was "By The Book". I love the way all of the flavors work together. I'm a real couscous fan and this is another way to love it. This is so easy to make and the layers of flavors is simply lovely. I think this would be a great stuffing for peppers too."
"Loved this!! I mixed lemon/lime juice added extra jalapeno and carrots. This is the first time that I tried the goya salad seasoning. (won't be my last)when I tossed the dressing with the veggies and beans, and started tasting it was kind of hard to stop nibbling and I didn't even add the couscous to it yet!! I used whole wheat couscous. When I mixed it all together it looked great and tasted wonderful. It makes a lot so I will have plenty to enjoy throughout this hot summer weather week. This was easy to put together, economical, healthy and most important, delicious. Thanks again for posting this recipe."
"Loved this! Very easy and I had almost everything to make it already in my house. Very good and easy couscous Salad. Made this for ZWT III thanks for posting!"
"I made this for a work potluck. It was easy and fantastic! If I made it for home I would make it a little more spicy!"
