    This is wonderful Rose Reisman salad, it's great as a side but I'll usually make it for a light lunch.

      I was looking for a recipe to duplicate my favorite couscous salad served at a local deli and I think I've found it! I used a cranberry/raisin/currants mix and added pine nuts. Included the curry because it gives it such a good flavour against the honey and raisins. My new lunch staple!

      I only had a quick taste as I made this for the DM and DS but we had a few hiccups in that I didn't have any capsicum/bell pepper so deseeded half a tomato and used the flesh to replace but otherwise made as directed making the couscous mix int he morning and pouring the dressing over just before serving. Thank you Kelly in TO, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.

      Yummy! I used leftover whole wheat couscous so mixed in the curry in the dressing. Also used orange juice concentrate as I assumed that's what was intended. Nice combination of colors, flavors, and textures. Healthy and delicious, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
