This made a great take along lunch. It's ingredients are great together and, as with such things, improve with a bit of standing time. The ingredients are wonderful together and I especially love the cashews. :D
I enjoyed this couscous for dinner one night, and with some sesame ginger dressing for lunch a few days later. Good flavors. Made for PRMR game.
