Citrusy Couscous Salad with Olives


From EatingWell:  May/June 1995, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Try this refreshing grain salad as an accompaniment to grilled chicken or fish. Chilled, it's also great for picnics. Look for whole-wheat couscous in the natural-foods section of supermarkets or in specialty stores.

  2. Fluff the couscous with a fork. Add parsley, scallions, olives, diced orange and lemon juice; toss to blend. Season with pepper.
