Loved this. It tasted as beautifully as it looked. The harissa gave it a nice spark cooled down by the bursts of sweet/sour from the pomegranate. Delicious. Thanks.

  1. Place the couscous in a large mixing bowl. Add olive oil, vinegar, harrisa, and lemon juice. Stir.
  2. Pour boiling water over the couscous until just covered. Stir. If couscous looks dry add more water. Cover bowl and let sit 6 minutes.
  3. Use a fork to fluff the couscous. If the couscous is too dry or too hard, add more water, cover and let sit another few minutes.
  4. Add green pepper and pomegranate seeds.
