    Curried Couscous Salad

    Couscous is a popular North African dish made from wheat. It is quick to prepare and easy to flavour. This salad brings the bright taste of cranberries together with the slight spice of curry. For variety try substituting pomegranate seeds or raisins in place of cranberries.
