Reviews for Crab Couscous Salad
"Great fast meal for a warm day or potluck picnic. We add 1 cup thawed frozen peas and 1 Tablespoon chopped mint, otherwise as written."
"This was good and easy to make. I used more cumin than called for and also added a couple pinches of dried lemon grass. It was still somewhat bland, perhaps due to the low sodium vegetable broth I used. Next time I will add salt."
