This made for a quick lunch today. The idea came from a recipe posted on allrecipes.com . I followed it pretty closely, but didn't add the cucumber, and only used 1/4 cup of cranberries instead of 1/3 cup.
1/3 cup couscous
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
2 teaspoons balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing
salt to taste
Add couscous and dried cranberries to a bowl. Pour hot water over the ingredients. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap, and let stand for 5 - 10 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork, and add remaining ingredients, mixing well. Enjoy!
Note added June 19, 2008-- Today I fixed this for lunch and added half a cucumber, diced. Wonderful! Try it- it's good!
Note added June 22, 2008--Added some chopped onion today. I combined couscous, cranberries, and finely chopped onion in the bowl, then poured the hot water over and followed the rest of the recipe (I also had the cucumber in the salad). Very delicous!
