If you like tuna and olives, I think you would like this. If you don't, why would you try?! Couscous by itself can be bland and dry for me, so I mixed in vegetables that I roasted with a little garlic and rosemary. Adds vitamins, too. Although if I were to make this again, (hubby wants me to) I think I would rather pair it with a good green salad and some crispy roasted potatoes.
