Couscous and Cherry Tomato Salad

Couscous and Cherry Tomato Salad created by Hope Rock

This is a wonderful side dish that me mum (my English mother-in-law) has prepared for us twice now upon visiting. Some of the last batch is still in the fridge as I write this, and I can't stop nibbling at it! I finally remembered to get the recipe this time.

    Good Recipe. I used red bell pepper in substitute for the chili pepper. Added feta, Zucchini and Garlic Salt, and omitted the oil. Since there was such a large clean bite to mine, I added a pinch of sugar to mellow all the tart flavors. It really came together. I loved it!! I've made this recipe so many different ways. I certainly enjoyed it!! Thank you for sharing.
