    I usually make tabouli which calls for fresh parsley. I will try this but substitute parsley for the mint and use chopped scallions since I don't usually have red onions on hand. And a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Great summer recipe to use with the fresh garden tomatoes and cucumbers! - 7/26/09

  • This was fabulous. I added a little garlic and a few Greek olives. It would be great with zucchini instead of the cucumber too. - 7/29/13

  • Really love this. I use it both as side dish for fish and also as salad to take with me to work. I even manage to do it without boiling water...just fresh lemon juice and water and rest of
    ingredients. Other times i replace feta cheese with our own Maltese Goat's Pepper Cheeslets (Gbejniet) - 7/5/12

  • A few changes for us: added a can of black beans (drained), zucchini chopped (instead of cucumber), red bell pepper & shredded carrot, and cilantro instead of mint & oregano. Any veggies seem to work! Yum! - 8/24/11

  • This was really, really good. I added black olives and two cloves of garlic. The only thing I would do differently is serve it as soon as I put the dressing on. I put the dressing on too early and the couscous was a little dry. My husband had second and third helpings! - 4/29/10
