    gailanng's Note:

    From Giada De Laurentiis. Barley or orzo may be used in place of the Israeli couscous, which is a larger grain. If using orzo rinse quickly after cooking to remove residual starch.

    Vinaigrette

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the couscous and cook, stirring occasionally until slightly browned and aromatic, about 3 to 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 to12 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated. Transfer the cooked couscous to a large bowl; set aside to cool. Add the parsley, rosemary, thyme, apple, dried cranberries and almonds.
    3. 3
      While couscous is cooking, prepare vinaigrette. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil until smooth. Pour the vinaigrette over the couscous; toss to coat evenly.

      This speaks SUMMER to me! So lovely & light with all the fresh herbs. I'm not even gonna wait for the family to try it, this ROCKS! The Israeli couscous did not absorb all the liquid so I drained it &then decided to rinse it to cool off quickly. It still had a great flavor imparted from the chicken broth. Like Pammyowl I used honey (personal preference). I used Pink Lady apples, although I'll bet the tartness of a granny smith apples would complement the sweetness of the craisins & honey. I did not toast the sliced almonds . Serving with grilled chicken.
