I’ve been on the fence about couscous for some time. I’ve cooked it, and eaten it, and ordered it out, but I was never really smitten with it. While in Disney World a couple of weeks back, my family visited ‘Morocco’, part of the Epcot park, where we had lunch. We ordered a variety of things, and one of our dishes came with a side of couscous, served cold with dried fruits and nuts. A fruity couscous salad – it was delicious! Like slap your mama good, and I was determined to find a way to duplicate it.
I stumbled across several recipes, but most were for warm dishes and just didn’t sound right, and then I found this recipe on AllRecipes.com! BINGO.
I did make a few slight modifications based on some of the comments, but this couscous turned out amazing. There are so many things you could do to change this recipe up, so don’t be afraid to do something a little different. I actually bought my couscous in bulk and didn’t have instructions for cooking it, so I found this great resource for cooking basic couscous. Pin it for later ;)
Serve it up with some chicken tandoori, eat it warm or cold, or heck, have it for breakfast. Seriously. I totally ate it for breakfast.
