Couscous With Olives and Lemon
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
8 ingredients
4 servings
From a saved page of an old Gourmet Magazine. I prefer to use Israeli couscous, the pearl type, however you need to check package directions for additional cooking time. This was a great side dish for "Marinated Lamb Chops" Marinated Lamb Chops. I also used kalamata olives and skipped the salt.
