Recipe is great. Tastes wonderful warm or cold. I needed to add extra lime juice and olive oil to prevent drying out.

This recipe is good, but I think I prefer the Summer Garden Couscous Salad over it. I bet the two recipes could be combined for a really great salad!

This was a wonderful side! I loved the great textures and the cilantro added a fresh, cool flavor that made it hard to pass up.
