I found this recipe delicious but I did tweak quite a bit so I can't give the full five stars. Instead of water, I used vegetable broth and what a flavorful difference. I used balsamic vinegar instead of white, and garlic infused olive oil, and again, a great flavor boost. I also used a red onion. It tasted fabulous! I think this recipe lends itself to many different variations and tastes - it's very versatile.
This is a very simple and healthy recipe. The only problem I found was that it is a little bland, so I added red peppers and substituted balsamic vinegar for white.
I love the mixture of beans, veggies and couscous though! an awesome combination of textures.
Nice simple recipe. Glad I read the other reviews which inspired me to make some changes of my own. Used lime, balsamic and fresh herbs and made double the amount of dressing. Also added celery, bell pepper and blanched asparagus. Best prepared the day before to enhance the flavours.
Wonderfully easy and tasty! I peppered this nicely, and didn't add any extra salt. Next time I'll try lemon juice instead of vinegar for more flavour. Thanks for this one!
This was a nice and simple recipe. I added a bit more olive oil and vinegar for more of a punch. I also added sliced red onions to bulk up the veggies.
I will definitely make this again.
Surprisingly good! This was my first time using couscous and this recipe fit my taste buds! I did change a few things - I used lemon juice instead of vinegar (as others suggested), diced canned tomatoes (with juice) and I added some tarragon to the dressing. Will definitely use this recipe again!
This was pretty tasty but I think it should be 1/4 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup white vinegar instead of teaspoon. Otherwise it's way too dry and has no flavor to speak of. A little fresh mint might be nice in this also.
While the recipe was OK and probably a good picnic food, there just wasn't enough flavor for our liking. I made it 2 times, the first time with chicken broth, the second without. Definately use the chicken broth.
