    We enjoyed this. I used parsley instead of cilantro but I didn't think it added much to the dish. I will be sure to try cilantro next time. I also left out the tomatoes which in hindsight took some of the flavor away from the salad, so I will add some next time. I decreased the oil to 1/4 cup, doubled the lime juice, and added 1 tsp. of cumin. There were no leftovers! I will make again--thanks for posting.

    I have made a different version of this before, but not for a few years and it seems that author changed the recipe since! This is very close to the original one I had liked. I used a T or so dried cilantro which worked great (I don't love cilantro and this seemed more subtle). I also added about 1/4 C parmesan cheese...sounds odd, but I had tried it before to give just a little more flavor and liked it. Served with tequila lime chicken.

    We really liked this. It was a little bland, but I added a diced avocado and that was a good addition. Good leftovers. Great for cookouts and hot summer days.

    Very wholesome! I made the following changes: added yellow peppers, a can of chickpeas, 1/2 tsp chilli powder, and 1 tsp cumin powder; also put in more garlic, more pepper, and more lime juice. Will make again, but with less couscous and more veggies as we plan to eat this as a main. Thanks for recipe :)
