  • Yum! I didn't have couscous, so used quinoa instead. Rice could probably be used, too. I also added cilantro and used corn from my parents' garden instead of mexi-corn. Very good flavor... - 5/17/10

  • This recipe is pretty good. I added 3 things to it, and it just made it my kind of salad. 1/2 a cucumber peeled and quartered, thinly sliced, 1 large garlic clove, finely minced, and 1 green onion, thinly sliced. - 8/8/09
