Couscous Salad

Forgive me. Some of my recipes are going to be more like informal notes. If you need hard numbers for anything, please drop me a line.

Couscous Salad

In a large lidded skillet:

1-2 T. Olive Oil
1 onion, chopped

Saute the onion over med - med-high heat until golden brown. Add in:

1 bag israeli couscous

Continue to saute until couscous has browned a bit as well. Stir in:

2 C. boiling water (or broth)

Bring heat down to simmer. Add in:

salt, pepper, chopped parsley

Mix. Cover. Simmer for 5-10 minutes (until liquid has been absorbed). Remove from heat. Stir in:

1/3 C. chopped, dried fruit (I used apricots once, and mixed fruit another time)
1/4 C. slivered almonds
1 can cannelli beans (small white beans), rinsed and drained

At this point taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. I added a dash of turmeric and it gave the dish a nice flavor.

Can be served warm, cold, or room temp.
