    Made this recipe and it was a huge hit. Tasted even better the next day. Didn't have pine nuts, so I used a fabulous toasted nut mixture purchased at the Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem. Served the nuts on the side so they didn't get soggy. Will definitely be making again and again.

    I have made this several times for BBQs and summer parties, and it's always a hit. I prefer to use Craisins rather than golden raisins. They make the salad more colorful and add a nice flavor.

    Absolutely deliciious! I make it at least once a week and take it to pot lucks where it gets rave reviews.

    Moroccan couscous is a different food item despite the use of the same name. This comment is from someone who is making some kind of political statement regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict. From a food point of view, the comment is inaccurate. From the political point of view, the comment does not belong here on Martha Stewart's website.

    The Israeli variant is about twice the diameter and made of hard wheat instead of regular couscous wihich is semolina. This larger type is packaged in the stores as "Israeli Cousous".
