This was not a big hit with family. Flavors were okay but not worth making again.

This recipe is a keeper. It has a flavorful fruity taste and gives you the fulfillment of a starch. If you're tired of always making rice and potatoes, this is a great variation. I served it ...

I have made this several times. I absolutely love this, my friends and family do too! It's also great served warm.

I did not know if couscous was pre cooked so I put 1&1/2 cups dry couscous into this recipe and very dry. I added more water than the 2 1/2 cups. It then became mushy.

Excellent warm, sweet salad served with roasted leg of lamb and balsamic glazed asparagus! Yummm! Christmas Dinner for 10 people...doubled the recipe and followed exactly. Perfect!

This is not your grandma's fruit salad! Not only is this delicious, it's got surprise value since no one I know expects much flavor from 'fruit salad' beyond what a pile of melons and pineapples...
