10-minute Couscous Salad

Couscous is a super fast grain to prepare and cook. This refined grain has a very neutral flavor making it ideal for salads.

A sweet and savory combination of couscous, dried cranberries, sugar snap peas and pine nuts makes this salad irresistible.  In addition, the combination of green, red and gold colors is really pretty. This dish is great to bring to a party, for a picnic or for lunch.
