Israeli Couscous with Cranberries and Pecans

August 5, 2010

Couscous with Cranberries and Pecans This is yet another great side dish to serve with any kind of protein. It will go really well with burgers, hot dogs, steaks and fish.

I made it with some grilled chicken. I used the harvest grain blend from Trader Joes which includes a few different grains including Israeli couscous.

I kept it simple with dried cranberries and pecans.

I made a quick orange dressing with fresh orange juice, orange zest, white wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. I mixed the yummy dressing into the cooked couscous blend and I had a delicious and healthy side dish.

My daughter didn’t care for the cranberries and nuts- so I took them out for her and she ate the grains. I made a simple green salad on the side and we had a light and delicious meal.
