    I've been meaning to make this since I pulled it from the magazine more than 4 years ago! Very nice couscous, made to recipe, great flavors and colors. One substitution -- instead of mixing chicken breast into the salad, seared 3/4 lb sea scallops and served along side. Excellent.

    This is a great recipe!! I made it without the added chicken for a side dish during the holidays. It was a huge hit.

    This was so easy, and my fiancee loved it! I will definitely make this again.

    This was so delicious, I'm glad there were so many previous reviews praising this dish. It was my first attempt at making couscous, and I will definitely make this often. A great light summer luncheon salad.

    Great side dish - skipped the chicken and served with Spice-Crusted Salmon with Citrus Sauce and Citrus-Marinated Mushrooms. Delicious and light!

    I've been making this dish for about 5 years now and it's a favorite. I usually double the cranberries and almonds and put in extra cucumber. Great dish for summer cookouts.

    I made this as a part of our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club. Here's the link - http://whistlestopcooking.blogspot.com/2011/08/cooking-light-summerfest-beach-party.html - I loved the flavor of orange, the almonds and cucumbers gave the perfect amount of crunch. I used the larger pearl couscous and thought it was GREAT !
