  • Bring the chicken broth or water to a boil
  • Whisk in couscous and turn off heat.
  • Place lid on the pan and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Toast the walnuts until a little darker in color and smell nutty
  • Add the cooked couscous, nuts, dried fruit, olive oil, and vinegar to a bowl.
  • Gently toss until well mixed.

Substitute the pecans with peanuts, almost, cashews, walnuts, or any kind of nut.
Substitute the cranberry with your favorite dried fruit or any that you have on hand.
The addition of feta, goat, or blue cheese is fantastic.
