This has great potential but needs a lot more balsamic vinegar. I think White Balsamic would be great in this and not give the salad thta muddy color. The instructions on cooking the Isreali couscous are very different than the package instructions. I tried it this way and after 25 minutes the liquid was not absorbed and the couscous wasn't tender. Toast the couscous in a little olive oil - add the boiling water - cover and simmer on very low for 10 - 12 minutes until the water is absorbed. I made this for the Western Region Allstar Faceless Frenzy July 2012. With the changes mentioned above, I will definitely make this again.

I found this was a great side dish. I didn't care for the shallot but that wasn't enough for me to mark it down. Instead of dicing the mozzarella I just used the pearlini style -which is a fresh bite size mozzarella. I think next time I'll leave out the balsamic and olive oil, and substitute some pesto



I got impatient and ate this at room temperature. It was great! I added extra basil, used red onion instead of a shallot, and omitted the garlic. I would definitely make it again :)
