Couscous with Tomatoes and Scallion

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

This is a terrific, simple and quick side dish. I've also used this recipe to spice up a box the "Near East" brand flavored couscous as well. Simply use the amount of water specified on the box, and add the extra ingredients. It will still be ready in 5 minutes

This was fabulous, quick and so easy. This is definitely somethign I will make again. Honestly I have had a hard time (in the past) taking a liking for couscous, but in a dish like this, I thoroughly enjoyed it. There isnt a whole lot to it, but with the ingredients it contains, the flavors and textures make it delightful! THanks so much becky!
