This is a super-easy, great tasting salad that can be served hot or cold. The balsamic vinegar and feta add great flavor. You can also add chopped chicken breasts to make it a complete meal.

Really good and really easy. My husband has never been crazy about couscous but he liked this a lot. So easy and so tasty and it really is good hot or cold. I used white balsamic vinegar and that flavor really pops giving you just the right amount of tartness. Read More

I love all the ingredients and it was easy to make but I agree that it came out a little bland. I made it exactly as listed. Maybe more balsamic or adding capers or olives would kick it up a notch. Read More
