Couscous salads are perfect for packed lunches, picnics and light summer meals. This is a spicy, aromatic salad with loads of fresh herbs. This is my interpretation of tabbouleh - enjoy!
Holy tingling tastebuds, this is crazy good! Instead of the customary potato/macaroni salad, I opted to make this as a side dish for bbq ribs. Left out the cilantro as I'm not a fan of its (soaplike) taste, but just chopped enough flat-leaf parsley to compensate. The real surprise, though, is the fresh jalapeno, especially when combined with the fiery cayenne and the smoky cumin. It's a trifecta of explosive flavor while the cuke, mint and lemon provide the cooling effects. This is now my go-to summer salad ~ thanks vburrito! - 01 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is my recipe. I recently tried this with quinoa & it was great (maybe even better than with couscous!) - 17 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love spicy foods and this is a cool salad with a kick from the jalapenos! I added olive oil to the mix at the very end, liked how that rounded out the flavors and bound everything together. - 18 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
