A truly delicious couscous salad. Couscous is cooked with cranberries, then tossed with cucumber, feta cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. For additional crunch, why not add some toasted walnuts.
This was delicious and very flavorful! I tripled it and used whole wheat couscous and reduced fat feta. I ate it warm for lunch and served it cold for a side at a BBQ. Perfect both ways. I didn't have dressing so I just did 2 parts olive oil to like 1.5 parts balsamic vinegar and a couple cloves of minced garlic. This was pretty garlicky so I wouldn't suggest you doing that unless you don't have dressing Thanks for a truly great recipe ~ this will be a staple this summer. - 07 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
overall I enjoyed this dish. The combination of feta and cranberries is wonderful however I did not care for the balsamic dressing. Next time i may try some olive oil and maybe a splash of lemon instead of the balsamic - 14 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very wonderful flavor. You need to cut the water in half though, it should be a 1:1 ratio between cous cous and water, even with the dried cranberries. Also, I subbed cropped spinach for cucumbers and it was delicious. - 12 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
