My husband introduced me to this family favorite. Honestly, I had never tried couscous before this. I can’t believe how versatile it is and simple of course! This dish is perfect for company, camping, weekday lunches, etc. Try it out. Add other elements if you want. Take out what you don’t like. Eat it for lunch!

Yum! If you're not familiar with couscous, it's a pasta ground from semolina that originated in North Africa. It's flavorless on its own, but when mixed with ingredients it takes on those flavors. And Karie's recipe is packed with flavor! The dressing is full of cumin and lemon. It's a light, fresh, and delicious summer salad. The Test Kitchen
