Couscous Salad with Cherry Tomatoes and Bell Peppers

Although couscous is commonly mistaken for a grain, it is actually tiny pasta made from durum-wheat semolina. In North African countries such as Tunisia and Morocco, where it is a staple, it is traditionally made by hand and then steamed twice in a special two-tiered pot called a couscousiere. Elsewhere, precooked dried couscous, sometimes called instant couscous, is available either packaged or in bulk. It requires no cooking at all, just rehydrating in boiling water, before serving.

Make sure to let it rest & the flavors will blend
January 12, 2013
We made this for New Years and found it to be so-so when we first made it, great after sitting for 12 hours and excellent after sitting 24 hours. We also found if you feel it is too bland, adding just a drizzle of lemon infused balsalmic really yummies it up. It does completely change the flavor, but pairs well with the flavors in the dish already.
Pros: Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

Nice, but not exciting
May 24, 2012
I had higher expectations from this salad, but found it to be a little bland.
Then again, I did not make it ahead and let it sit for hours, so perhaps if I had done so the flavours would have intensified.
Pros: Quick, Good Value, Easy, Healthy

Good healthy sidedish
May 1, 2010
Like the seasonings, nice and fresh tasting, but I think it would be a tad more toothsome made with Isreali couscous. I would also probably use lightly sauteed bell pepper vs roasted bell pepper for crunch, but that's just a personal preference, it wouldn't materially alter the flavor. Good dish.
