this recipe is not spectacular but if you have all the ingredients lying around (as I did) its a decent summer side dish. I would add greek olives instead of green next time. I also thought fresh blanched green beans would be better than canned. the dressing is really thick. I added a extra 1-2 T of oil and lemon juice. Read More

it was good but there was too much couscous and not enough vegetable for my taste. i liked the chickpea though and i think the dressing was a little too bitter so i put a dash of honey in it and it evened out nicely. it was well liked though and i would definitely make it again. Read More

This salad is pretty good! I didn't really like the sound of the dressing so I substituted it for the dressing found in "Pasta Salad with Homemade Dressing" by BONNIES. Read More
