I found this recipe delicious but I did tweak quite a bit so I can't give the full five stars. Instead of water, I used vegetable broth and what a flavorful difference. I used balsamic vinegar instead of white, and garlic infused olive oil, and again, a great flavor boost. I also used a red onion. It tasted fabulous! I think this recipe lends itself to many different variations and tastes - it's very versatile.

This is a very simple and healthy recipe. The only problem I found was that it is a little bland, so I added red peppers and substituted balsamic vinegar for white. I love the mixture of beans, veggies and couscous though! an awesome combination of textures.

Nice simple recipe. Glad I read the other reviews which inspired me to make some changes of my own. Used lime, balsamic and fresh herbs and made double the amount of dressing. Also added celery, bell pepper and blanched asparagus. Best prepared the day before to enhance the flavours. Cheers!
