Mandarin Couscous Salad
80 mins (prep 20, cooking 60)
12 ingredients
7 servings
From Light and Tasty magazine, Dec. 2004..submitted by D. Anderson. I have to admit, I've never tried couscous because it always looks so dry when I've seen it. I'm posting this recipe in hopes someone will review it and tell me if this one will be different. I did not see anything similar on this site. I'm hoping this will get me going in the right direction with a healthy alternative for side dishes. (Time to make is a guess as I've not made this before but it does include the time to chill the couscous).
