This is a light salad that is perfect for a lunch time meal! I have also made it for pot lucks with rave reviews. Unfortunately, I am not sure where this original recipe came from!!

Howdy, Miss Kelly! This recipe is quite delicious. As much as I find it rather annoying when folks make skatey-eight changes and then review, I must admit to making 1 minor adjustment...I omitted radishes due to preference. Oh, and I used jarred garlic rather than mincing fresh. Also, FYI, this recipe can be found at which says it came from Cooking Light May 2004. Thanks for sharing here - this is my fave site!

  1. To prepare salad, bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Spoon couscous into a large bowl; cool slightly. Add chicken, onions, radishes, cucumber, parsley, and pine nuts; toss gently to combine.
  2. To prepare dressing, combine vinegar and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle dressing over salad; toss to combine.
