I love couscous, and I started making this simply to use up extra fresh vegetables after making other dishes. It is so forgiving and can be tweaked in a thousand different ways. It tastes good chilled or at room temperature. I often make a big batch of this salad and eat it for lunches for 2-3 days. So simple and so addictive. —revans
