Excellent. I already had cooked couscous on hand as I'd made Recipe #421073, so I just added the cinnamon and proceeded from there. All the proportions were spot-on for my taste and the dressing was very nice if a little too liquidy. I think next time I'll go with just the orange juice and olive oil and leave the wine out altogether as it just made everything sort of soupy. Served with Recipe #428771.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To toast slivered almonds, cook on a baking sheet at 375°F for 5 to 10 minutes, checking and stirring frequently. Or, cook in a small skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently until golden brown.
  2. Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Stir in couscous, butter and cinnamon; cover and remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork and let cool.
  3. Place remaining salad ingredients in a bowl; drizzle with dressing and toss well to coat.
  4. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  5. Tangy Orange Dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together orange juice, extra virgin olive oil, white wine vinegar, honey, salt and pepper.
