"A variant on traditional bulgur tabbouleh. Great to serve at potlucks because it can be served cold or warm! Even better left over! The longer it sits, the more the flavors meld together."

  1. Bring chicken broth and water to a boil in a saucepan; remove from heat and stir in couscous. Cover saucepan and let couscous stand until the liquid is absorbed and the couscous is tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Made this as written. Flavor combination was odd (lemon juice was too strong). Will not make this again.

I used a box of couscous with the prepared seasonings for this tabbouleh so it might have tasted a bit different from how it was supposed to but it was very fresh tasting, summery, and delicious! The whole household liked it. I wouldn't change a thing. :)

Wow! Made it just as the recipe stated and it was absolutely delicious. Used flat leaf parsley (Italian).
