Orange Cranberry Couscous Like Whole Foods'

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Garlic Chick

I love to pick up the orange cranberry couscous at Whole Foods Market but it's a little spendy. So I took the ingredient list from this salad and employed the methods from a similar salad in the "Whole Foods Market Cookbook" and voila!

this is a very good recipe. I left out the almonds and parsley as I did not have them, it was very flavorful, I felt it could use another layer of flavor, maybe it was lost in the absence of parsley. I love the ginger and orange juice combo. Yum
