    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)
