      This did not turn out great for me. I cut it in half. I found that the couscous (which I have used before successfully) did not absorb the OJ/water mixture very well. Even letting it sit a little longer did nothing to stop the mushiness! So that's sad. But, the flavor also is a little too OJ centric for my taste. HOWEVER I think this could be tweaked. Maybe less liquid, and a smaller proportion of OJ. Thanks for sharing this interesting recipe has my wheels turning on how to adapt it for my tastes :)

      After reading a review in which the reviewer stated the dish was too sweet, I decided to omit the raisins. As far as needing "a little something", a dash of salt perked it up quite a bit. I had never made couscous before. My husband ate it once before, but declared he didn't like it. I changed his mind with this recipe. I served this with Moroccan-style chicken #138262. The tangy chicken and the sweet couscous balanced each other nicely.

      I was hoping this would be a nice counter balance to a spicy chicken dish, but I found that it was a little too sweet and needed something. Maybe cumin?
