    Shuzbud's Note:

    This is a filling, low points salad. If you really want to make it lower points, cut the amount of couscous you use (my usual couscous is 9 points per cup). I actually use 1/3 cup couscous for 3 points and leave out the olive oil from the dressing to make it really lean. As written, this recipe provides a total of 12 points but using 1/3 cup couscous and no olive oil gives 3 points only. Serves 2 as a lunch or up to 4 as a side dish. Cook time includes half an hour for the salad to chill in the refrigerator. This is easy to increase for large groups or take-to-work lunches.

      Wanted to keep this a veggie dish so used some homemade vegetable stock & it worked just fine! Seasoned the dressing with a bit of lemon pepper & we had a winning dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday's a Holiday tag]
