Really good and really easy. My husband has never been crazy about couscous, but he liked this a lot. So easy and so tasty, and it really is good hot or cold. I used white balsamic vinegar, and that flavor really pops, giving you just the right amount of tartness.

I love all the ingredients and it was easy to make, but I agree that it came out a little bland. I made it exactly as listed. Maybe more balsamic or adding capers or olives would kick it up a notch.

Easy and delicious! Used diced italian canned tomatoes in oregano, basil, lots of fresh basil from the garden and added sautéed chicken. Will definitely make this again.

This recipe is the best couscous recipe I have ever eaten. Delicious. My husband said it was his favorite too. Just the way it is. Don't change anything.

I liked an easy recipe using my garden's fresh basil. We liked it warm or cold but warm is my preference

Awesome! I've made this without the balsamic before. The Balsamic adds a great flavor to this. I absolutely love this!

I brought it to a work party and did as the other reviewer stated by using white balsamic vinegar! It was amazing we all loved it and it was so easy.
