"This recipe is great hot or cold. I invented it in grad school when I had no time to cook. It's a quick and easy one dish recipe. I use it as a side dish for nice meals or a full meal for lunch. You can make it in 5 minutes or less and eat immediately. For extra protein you can add chicken breast."

Very wonderful flavor. You need to cut the water in half though, it should be a 1:1 ratio between cous cous and water, even with the dried cranberries. Also, I subbed cropped spinach for cucumbe...

Delicious!! I used Trader Joe's Harvest Grains blend with Israeli couscous, orzo, baby garbanzos, and red quinoa. I added walnuts for a little more protein, and used just a splash of olive oil a...

This was a really nice side dish to have with some chicken. Next time I will add a bit more balsamic and serve it alongside a lamb main as I think the flavours would meld together nicely.

Tasty! My balsamic vinaigrette recipe called for basil, but I used mint instead.

So great and so easy. I didn't have cucumbers so I used edemame to give it a little protein. Very good!

Ths is a "first cousin" to the classic Tabouleh... Excellent. I added some chopped walnuts and a little lemon juice. Great side dish for moorish style chicken kebabs!
