About this recipe: This couscous salad is anything but bland! It makes a perfect summer meal. Couscous is combined with veggies, chickpeas, crispy bacon and then drizzled with a light vinaigrette that benefits from a touch of curry spices.
You can use any vegetables you have to hand. If you are short on time, you can skip the bacon and onions (although everything is better with bacon) and use spring onions instead.
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 US | 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 US | Canada)
