Couscous Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by JustJanS

I love couscous, and this is a variation I make quite often. You could use golden raisins instead of the craisins but I think they taste yummy.

Divine! We are major couscous eaters in our house, and this one passed all the tests. I used whole wheat couscous, and never ever thought of mixing them with snow peas, and it's a great match. The preserved lemons add a wonderful flavor, I mixed them in instead of using them as a garnish. I'm not a fan of mint in my couscous, so I just left it out. This made just enough for dinner and a bit left over to take into the office for lunch the next day. Thanks for the new twist on an old favorite, Jan!
