INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 3/4 cup pearl (Israeli) couscous
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/8 pinch or dash crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • For the vinaigrette, in a small bowl, whisk vinegar, oil, salt, crushed red pepper and garlic until combined. Stir in cilantro and cover and refrigerate until ready to use. For the salad, in a medium saucepan cook couscous for 1 minute in oil over medium-low heat to lightly toast, stirring frequently. Add water and reduce heat to low, and simmer covered for 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and let cool slightly. To assemble, transfer couscous to a large bowl and stir in dressing, mango, green onions, bell pepper and raisins; cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Just before serving sprinkle with almonds and feta.
