Love this dish! My husband who is not a fan of couscous or cucumbers requests this dish on a regular basis. It is just that good. I will sometimes add a cup of cooked chopped chicken breast meat to the dish, and make a whole meal out of it.

I made this for dinner guests last evening. It was an excellent compliment to blackened tuna! Actually, I simplified the recipe further. I use Good Seasons Italian dressing (the kind made in it's own carafe.) Instead of oil/vinegar, I used Lime juice and olive oil. Just poured it over the couscous, and veggies and served it at room temperature. Guests raved!

This was a super easy and good recipe.. I used Orzo pasta as my toddler really likes it. I just cooked the pasta and added a bit of lemon juice to the whole thing.
