hi cath, that's simply stunning; i've never had israeli couscous before - looks terrific, like little seed pearls...


Hi Jocelyn - thanks! It's great stuff - and really pretty on a plate!


You are right Cath, it is very pretty! And sounds yummy too :)


What a great and simple standard. I must try this.


Hi Joey -- thanks! When you make it, let me know how you like it!

Hey Renee -- as a matter of fact, we will need to pick up Israeli couscous during our shopping expedition in Atlanta! :-)


I've had this salad at Whole Foods and it is absolutely delicious. I'm going to try to make it today. Thanks for the recipe!


i just made this salad today. It was good but I think it could use a little less lemon than it calls for


Thanks so much for sharing! I've made this recipe twice in three days. It's my new potluck standard for the summertime. I added baby artichoke hearts, fresh grapes and red bell paper to the salad, and I toasted the pine nuts...Wow! Great recipe to build on and get creative!


this is so delicious!!! love it love it love!!! it's my new favourite salad, and something different to impress my friends!


what are the number of servings for this recipe? Thanks!


i added toasted slivered almonds also. great salad.


@Dan- I actually had an Israeli Couscous salad at Whole Foods years ago but they wouldn't share the recipe so I ended up making my own. :-)
@Sara - Thanks for the tip! I love the tartness of the lemon but I've found that everyone ends up making their own variation.
@June - I love baby artichokes! Definitely a great salad to get creative with.
@Bil - This should make between 4-6 servings.
@Bilz - Thanks for dropping by!

it sounds so very good I am going to try it today but I will use some substitution as I don't have it all in the house. Serving with wild caught albacore tuna

Can this be made the day before serving?

I'm trying this recipe. We love Israeli couscous but have to drive to Denver or Minneapolis to buy it!! So when we do we buy 5 lb. at a time. I have problems with it sticking to the bottom of the pan when I cook it. Need to learn how to do that better, any suggestions.


I made this salad a couple of times and am about to make it again for a gathering at the bootcamp I work at. LOVE IT!!
