Starbucks used to have this great curry chicken couscous quinoa salad with a citrus cumin dressing. Sadly, they don't make it anymore, but now I can make my own with this dressing! Half n half quinoa and couscous, either curry chicken or tofu, grapes, pine nuts and whatever other veggies you like; tomatoes, chickpeas, carrots, red bell pepper... I like all those in mine. This is my favorite thing now whenever I have to brownbag a lunch. And I don't even like couscous... Also, just as tasty with only quinoa instead of couscous if you're gluten free.
