"For a beautiful, flavorful cold salad and a wonderful variation from the standards, try this easy and delicious couscous. Shrimp and tomatoes are tossed with couscous and feta cheese, then dressed in a garlic vinaigrette. Always a hit, and never goes to waste." — Isabelle

I copied this recipe several years ago, and have taken it to every holiday and covered dish event since. I do a little less couscous and add some diced cucumber.
I'm sorry we did not like this at all. We can't put our finger on it but it just wasn't right. The first couple of bites were good, than it was like you just got sick of eating it or something. I won't make this again.
This was out of this world! I usedd red wine vinigar and lemon zest and it was fantastic! I will make tis again and again this Summer.
I thought this recipe was fantastic!! I used crumbled goat cheese on hand.....very pleased with the results!
Can't wait to make again!
7.20.06-Just want to add that I have made this recipe about a dozen times! I actually double the dressing portion and use it for marinading chicken and pork for grilling. Love, love, love!
my fussy husband really liked this recipe. even better next day!
This is not my typical type of salad, never been much of a couscous or feta fan. I made for my family during the summer. It was wonderful and surprisingly light. I subed basil from my garden for the parsley and left it overnight to marry the flavours. Definately better the next day. Will make again and again. Quick easy and refreshing on a hot summer day.
I made this for a SuperBowl party and people enjoyed it. Probably is best as a summer dish? Nice and light, very colorful, and holds up well. Next time I am going to try using a flavored couscous (maybe garlic and herb?). A touch bland for my taste, but extra salt and pepper on my own serving made it yummy. Will definitely make again.
I made this for my bunco group and it was a hit. I don't really care for peppers and yet I still like it. I think it is because the dressing balances the pepper flavor out.
