6 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)

Quick and easy to make, this salad keeps well and tastes best at room temperature--all of which make for an ideal weekday lunch. Pack it with cut-up fresh pineapple and biscotti.

Bring vegetable broth and 6 tablespoons water to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Delicious and versitile

I only had quinoa, and no kalmata olives on hand, but the end result was fabulous! I added some diced serrano and used harissa (very spicy) evoo! Loved it! Very quick and easy. I made the quinoa during the day, and threw the rest together while my main dish was cooking on the grill!

This is great as a light lunch or a side dish with almost anything. I actually crave it! Don't try to substitute balsamic vinegar for the red wine variety - it makes it too sweet!

This is so good! Loved it with a pitas and some thinly sliced sirloin. I also served some fresh spinach with cucumbers. My only change to the recipe was to add some basil and mint instead of parsley and to use all stock and no water. The leftovers will be great for lunch, too.

Have made this several times with couscous and quinoa. Either way...it's delicious! I added cucumber and it added a little bit of crunch. YUM!

Delicious! I followed the recipe almost to the letter; only substitution was using goat cheese as I had that on hand. Made it on a Sunday and it was good for lunch all week!

Really delicious. When I first tasted it, I found it a little dry and the texture a little boring. I added an extra tablespoon of olive oil and 1/4 cup of sliced almonds and was really happy with the changes. Next time I will still make these additions and will then double the whole recipe because this quantity was only enough to feed two people as an entree, and I want leftovers!
