Recipe Name: Couscous Summer Salad

1/2 cup currants
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups water
1−1/2 cups couscous
1 large carrot, diced
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley

Code: Select all
Place the currants, orange juice, lemon juice, 1/3 cup canola oil, salt,
cinnamon, and cayenne pepper in a jar with a tight−fitting lid and shake
well. Set aside. Bring the water and 1 Tbsp. canola oil to a boil in a
medium saucepan. Stir in the couscous, then remove from the heat, cover, and
let stand for about 6 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Transfer the
couscous to a large bowl, fluff with a fork, and let cool. Steam the carrot
and bell pepper until they are a bright color, but still crunchy, about 3
minutes. Rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process and add to the
couscous. Add the onion and parsley and stir. Shake the dressing again, pour
it over the couscous mixture, and stir until well blended. Refrigerate for
at least 1 hour (over night is best). Serve cold.ode]
