    The meatballs were tasty but I didn't care for the coucous salad. I love my coucous warm. Also, I had my hubby squeeze fresh lemon juice and it overpowered the salad. Overall it was unique and healthful! So thank you.

    Yummy! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. I've been trying to use more turkey and found this recipe while looking for ground turkey recipes. I'm glad I did it's delicious. I made a couple of changes. I added 2 cloves of fresh garlic to the salad. I added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/8 cayenne to the meatballs. I also served it with feta cheese and kalamata olives. Mmm tasty!
