    This salad is so yummy. When I made it, we found it tasted too much the balsamic vinegar. But after a night in the fridge, it doesn't taste too much balsamic vinegar. It's so yummy. With lots of fresh veggies. I just omitted the parsley. Thanks Chef Dudo :) Made for Ramadan tag game

    Although I'm not a huge fan of balsamic vinegar, this was a refreshing salad worthy of being a complete meal. I think next time I'll use red wine vinegar instead - but I can assure you, there will definitely be a next time. This is a tasty, crunchy, healthy salad, and even my picky DH enjoyed it.

    I think the ingredient that really sets this apart from other pasta salads (aside from the couscous) is the lemon zest. Along with the parsley it adds such a fresh zing to this salad! This was a delicous side to a BLT sandwich at lunch. Most definitely a keeper!

    Absolutely delicious! We really enjoyed all the fresh vegetables in this salad and the dressing was so tasty. I made it exactly as written and it was perfect. Next time I'll probably double the recipe because it didn't last long. Thanks for a great recipe gardenlady.
