Finally, a couscous salad that is not bland! This salad is a great addition to your summer meal or as a lunch any time of year.
You can use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge. If you are short on time, you can skip the bacon and onions (although everything is better with bacon) and use spring onions instead.
Very quick, loved the flavours of the dressing as did everyone else who ate it at our Australia Day BBQ. I used chicken stock instead of water. Added in a tin of 4 bean mix (instead of chickpeas which I didn't have), threw in the last of a container of Fetta cheese and just frozen peas/corn/carrots (as well as the bacon and onion). I forgot the salt but i did not miss it at all. LOVELY SALAD!! YUM! - 25 Jan 2014
I made this for all to bring for lunch as it will keep and not go bad. I did not add the Bacon because the flavor would be bad mixed with the other spices. To keep give it a real protein boost I added garden vegge type of tempeh. That gave the dish the extra punch it needed without the fatty bacon. - 27 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this exactly like the recipe (except I always add cumin), and the results were light and textural and very complex flavors. - 27 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
