Made this the night before going on a picnic. Was lovely and was all eaten up! Would definitely be making again. Would be great to have some other giant couscous recipes :)
I made this salad with quinoa as I did not have any couscous. I also am not a big mint fan so I only used half and doubled the feta. Absolutely delicious!!! It also keeps well. I had it for lunch three days in a row - ***yummy***
I tend not to experiment with recipes until AFTER I've followed the recipe once. There is nothing I would do different. I used exact measures and only the ingredients listed...and it's fabulous! Could eat the whole bowl!
I made this salad with fregola sardina instead of couscous, as I had some of the former hanging around, and none of the latter. The salad is delicious and a great way to use up those few errant veggies you have hanging around-- I added scallions, a diced kohlrabi from my CSA box, and some diced carrots for color. All were excellent additions. The feta really makes the dish with its salty richness and tang. The salad was a great side dish for roasted chicken.
Excellent side dish for a BBQ potluck.
Everyone said it was refreshing and delicious.
Brought this dish as a side to Easter dinner. The feta really over-powers this to me (I may not be a great fan of feta though) and the couscous really held the water from boiling. It was a nice side but not great.
Really liked this as a quick side. Do not skimp on the mint-needs lots of it, plus salt & pepper. Add some halved or quartered cherry tomatoes for color to this, as it really needs some. If you're calorie counting, use fat free feta. This would be a great summer lunch, maybe just serve it on sliced tomatoes or in a tomato shell.
