I absolutely love this recipie and make it every Summer. I have made some modifications over the years - I don't use spring onions and I add some sliced Queen olives as I love the taste of these. It is brilliant as a side dish at a BBQ and a very welcome variation for vegetarians.

I make this most weeks! I add a bit of rocket in too which really complements the couscous. Such a good recipe to add to fish or chicken. We love it!

Love this. Used mint and toasted almonds flakes instead of pinenuts. Great with ciabatta and houmous for supper and loads left for lunchbox.

Everyone I've made this for has raved about it and my boyfriend insists we have it on a regular basis! As I don't like cheese, we have it without the feta but it's still packed with flavour and texture. I've never made anything so quick and easy that tastes so great!

At last I have found an alternative to my usual cous cous salad. This is sooo tasty and a very nice side dish for our BBQ. I am looking forward to having the leftovers for my lunch tomorrow.

Absolutely a hit in the family! I made it today and everybody especially my dad loved it! I didn't have spring onion at the moment so I substituted it with chopped red onion, it worked fine!! Will definitely make it again, what a fresh and healthy summer dish!!

Really easy to do and really tasty. I made it with Quinoa instead of cous cous, as one of our guests was gluten intolerant. It worked really well.
