    Kiwi Kathy's Note:

    This is a delicious and colourful salad which is quick and easy to make. Keeps well if it lasts that long. I only used 1 cup of dried craisins and as I didn't have a full cup of them I topped it up with dried currants. I also only used 1/3 cup of pine nuts as that was all I had, and also they are very expensive, so using a whole cup seems a bit extravagant. However I submit the recipe in it's original form.

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #50* I also only used 1 cup of Craisins, which was plenty-- any more would have been too sweet. Made the rest as directed. Very nice salad, served with salmon burgers. Nice crisp sensation ! Thanks for posting, Kathy.

      I scaled this back for 4 serves (which was plenty for 3 of us as our only side and still a little left over). I only used 2 teaspoons of oil in the cooked couscous and that was plenty to separate it and then stir int he rest of the ingredients as per recipe, though I did use parsley instead of coriander/cilantro as we don't really care for the taste of it and the lemon added a really refreshing taste. Thank you Kiwi Kathy, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #66 July 2012.
