    I love this combination. It happened by accident and now I make it often. It is quick yet filling so it can be a main or side.

    This sounds like a yummy recipe but it should probably be under vegetarian not vegan as fetta is an animal product.  -  21 Jan 2010

    This recipe is not "vegan" due to the use of Feta (goats) cheese. Unless the cook can obtain vegan feta (not easy to find) or replaces with another soy based cheese. The vegan tag should be removed.  -  10 Oct 2009

    Love this recipe, but after making it several times now I've found that you only need 1 tbs of vinegar and 1 tbs of olive oil (or none at all). The vinegar can be overpowering if you use the full amount called for, especially when doubling the recipe. 2/3c uncooked couscous will feed 6-8 as a side. Again, the recipe is delicious. Thanks!  -  24 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
