I just didn't think this had much flavor, and I had high hopes when I saw that I would get to use pomegranate molasses! Anything that makes me buy a crazy new ingredient I usually love. I just felt it was a bit bland, and I didn't taste any of the great flavors that the ingredients would make you think were there. I even added feta. There are other couscous salads that I think are better, and don't require buying a $5 random ingredient. I brought it to my book club and it got so-so reviews.

This isn't bad but it didn't blow me away. It is really easy to make once you have the vinaigrette, and it is a nice twist on couscous. I kind of thought I had used too much of the vinaigrette, next time I won't dump the entire 1/2 cup in all at once.

I changed it up a bit and it was delicious. I omitted the recommended dressing and added 2/3 cup olive oil and the juice of 4 lemons instead along with a bunch of middle eastern spices as well as the chickpeas and feta cheese, i don't think it would be great as is though.
