When my mom and sister developed several food allergies, we had to modify many recipes. I substituted quinoa for couscous in this tabouleh. Now we make it all the time! —Jennifer Klann, Corbett, Oregon

If it doesn't have quite enough zip, add more lemon juice (I used fresh squeezed). GREAT!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2012

I just tried this recipe for the first time and took it to a potluck at church. People raved over it and several asked for the recipe. I had to leave out the parsley as I had forgotten to buy any (and I'm sure it would have been far better with the parsley included), but it didn't seem to make a difference to people. A very refreshing and healthy salad that I am likely to make again and again!
