“This recipe is great hot or cold. I invented it in grad school when I had no time to cook. It's a quick and easy one dish recipe. I use it as a side dish for nice meals or a full meal for lunch. You can make it in 5 minutes or less and eat immediately. For extra protein you can add chicken breast.” - by Levedi

"This was delicious and very flavorful! I tripled it and used whole wheat couscous and reduced fat feta. I ate it warm for lunch and served it cold for a side at a BBQ. Perfect both ways. I didn't have..." See more dressing so I just did 2 parts olive oil to like 1.5 parts balsamic vinegar and a couple cloves of minced garlic. This was pretty garlicky so I wouldn't suggest you doing that unless you don't have dressing :) Thanks for a truly great recipe ~ this will be a staple this summer."
