    1. 1
      For the couscous: Heat the oil in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened.
    2. 2
      Stir in the couscous. Cook and stir for 1 minute until coated with oil and lightly toasted. Add the water and bring to a boil, stirring. Remove from the heat and cover with lid. Let stand for 30 minutes, until cooled and the liquid is absorbed, uncovering occasionally to fluff with a fork.
    3. 3
      In the meantime, make the dressing: In a bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, yogurt, oil, gingerroot, garlic, cumin, ground coriander and pepper.
    4. 4
      To make the salad: Transfer the couscous to a large serving bowl. Add the cranberries (or raisins), chickpeas, bell peppers, cilantro (or parsley) and green onions. Add the dressing.
    5. 5
      Toss all the ingredients together. Garnish with the lemon wedges, if using.

      I have very much enjoyed this salad. It made a great meal with a few shrimp on the side. I've never seen couscous treated like rice before and, for me, it took less time to toast. I have the small couscous granules instead of the larger variety. It ended up a marvelous treat with spice use that can't be beat.
