Mediterranean Couscous

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Amy Blum

Just a quick side dish I whipped up as a complement to grape-leaf wrapped salmon I served for dinner. This is extremely easy to make, and is very flavorful.

Really good... and low calorie--yay! I added a bit more garlic than you did for more flavor, but over all this is a great recipe that I will definitely make again!
