    Delicious! We loved this colorful, fresh tasting salad. The fresh vegetables really complimented the couscous very well. I cooked the couscous in chicken broth instead of water for added flavor. Also, I added the cumin to the dressing ingredients for better distribution througout the salad. I added some extra garlic, a pinch of sugar, and salt & pepper to taste to the dressing. I'm looking forward to making this salad during the summer when I can use fresh peppers, tomatoes, chiles and corn from the garden. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper! *Made for 8th Annual Photo Swap*

    This was very good! Since I wanted more of a dinner than a salad, I sauteed the vegetables in a skillet with cooking spray. I used canned corn and canned tomato and omitted the cilantro. Next time I may add juice from two limes, because I liked the subtle zing. I'm looking forward to reheated leftovers tomorrow!

    Really nice blend of flavors. I loved the contrast of the soft couscous and the crunchy veggies. Thanks for a winner Caroline Cooks! :)
