To the platter you can add canned beans that have been rinsed and drained.

Also the ingredients can all be tossed together instead of serving like an antipasti.

How to Make Couscous Platter


  1. In medium saucepan bring broth to a boil. Stir in couscous. Cover pan and remove from heat. Let stand 10 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Fluff couscous with a fork, then toss with 1/3 cup of the vinaigrette.
  2. To assemble, place couscous in the center of a large platter. Arrange artichoke hearts, tomatoes, olives and chicken (tuna or anchovies); separately but surrounding the couscous. Drizzle the remaining vinaigrette over the plattered items.
  3. 1/3 cup sliced green onions or 2 TBS chopped fresh mint can be tossed into the couscous, before plating it on the platter.
