Easy and delicious! Used diced italian canned tomatoes in oregano, basil, lots of fresh basil from the garden and added sautéed chicken. Will definitely make this again.

This recipe is the best couscous recipe I have ever eaten. Delicious. My husband said it was his favorite too. Just the way it is. Don't change anything.

I liked an easy recipe using my garden's fresh basil. We liked it warm or cold but warm is my preference

Awesome! I've made this without the balsamic before. The Balsamic adds a great flavor to this. I absolutely love this!

Yummy!!! Great flavor which couscous is usually lacking.

I brought it to a work party and did as the other reviewer stated by using white balsamic vinegar! It was amazing we all loved it and it was so easy.

Delish!! I only had 1 cup coucscous so I used 1/2 cup quineo. turned out Fantastic!! A new twist on the typical tomato, balsamic vinegar and olive oil salad.

Added some olives and chicken. Delicious
