"Spicy, summery pasta salad made with cucumber, lemon, mint, basil, and jalapeno. This is my interpretation of a spicy tabbouleh dish from 'Pasta & Co.'"

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the couscous. Cover and let stand until the couscous absorbs the water entirely, about 10 minutes; fluff with a fork.
  2. While the couscous soaks, stir the feta cheese, jalapeno pepper, cucumber, garlic, green onion, mint, basil, cilantro, parsley, cumin, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the prepared couscous and mix well.

This is my recipe. I recently tried this with quinoa & it was great (maybe even better than with couscous!)

I love spicy foods and this is a cool salad with a kick from the jalapenos! I added olive oil to the mix at the very end, liked how that rounded out the flavors and bound everything together.

Amazing! The only thing that I changed was the amount of cayenne pepper, I like it a little less spicy.

This was very good, with just the right amount of spice, although I felt maybe it lacked something, like salt, next time I might cook the couscous with chicken broth instead.

I made this recipe just as specified, and it was delicious! I love spicy food, and I didn't find the kick to take away from the flavor at all. It was perfect, and I'll make this again for sure.
