    I have the same recipe. Use red wine vinegar and I double the EVOO (oil), cumin and fresh lime juice. - 4/20/08

    I loved this! I do wish the amount and type of vinegar had been included. I used 1 TBSP of Apple Cider Vinegar. Very refreshing and different side dish, and a great way to get some fiber. Next time I make this, I think I'll add some chopped jalapenos to give it a slight spice - 11/2/07

    I made this tonight. I thought it was going to be a flop since the amount and type of vinegar was missing in the list of ingredients. I used 2 tbs of Balsamic Vinegar, whole wheat couscous, extra cilantro and vegetable broth. It was very good. I've added it to my recipe collection. - 4/6/07
