DIRECTIONS

  • To make your own garlic-infused olive oil: Thinly slice two cloves of garlic. Add to a small saucepan with olive oil. Heat on medium-low until garlic just begins to brown - do not burn garlic! Remove from heat and use a slotted spoon to remove garlic from oil. Discard garlic slices. Set aside oil.
  • In a medium saucepan, bring chicken stock to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in couscous. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Fluff couscous with a fork. One at a time, stir in the remaining ingredients (starting with oil/dressing) until well combined.
