This is an wonderful salad for a potluck or picnic. It is gorgeous to look at and delicious to taste. It is very forgiving, add or adjust ingredients or seasonings as you desire. You might want to add a tad more vinegar depending on how tart you like your salads. I adapted this salad from a cous cous recipe from Silvia Lehrer/and Charlie from another site. You could add some cooked shrimp to this salad to make it a little more substantial.
