    This is a simple couscous salad. It is very simple and easy to make. I particularly like the pine nuts in this! Prep and cooking time do not include any chilling time.

      Just perfect! This is a beautiful salad with just a hint of sweetness from the fruit. We just loved it.

      Used veggie broth, added cucumbers and mint. I enjoyed all the flavors and made enough to enjoy several times. Thanks! Made for PRMR game.

      I love grain based salads...so tasty and easy to put together. The only thing I changed was to use dried cranberries instead of raisins, just for our preference. This is a keeper!
