Couscous Vegetable Salad from Bon Appétit magazine May 1995

Submitted by: SUPERDUPERKERRY

Introduction

Found this recipe on epicurious.com for a potluck I went to this weekend. Their recipe also calls for cumin, but I was out of that spice and didn't add it. Turned out delicious and those who have never had couscous before loved it! Found this recipe on epicurious.com for a potluck I went to this weekend.
