Citrus Couscous Salad

citrus-couscous-salad-thekrave

Winter is a great time for citrus and I’ve been craving something bright and fresh so I came up with this citrus couscous salad.  Like many of my favorite recipes it’s quick, easy, healthy and full of flavor. This couscous dish is great for a make-ahead weekday lunch and it goes really well with salmon, chicken or pork. Mix the vinaigrette into the couscous while it’s still warm to help it really soak into the couscous. Enjoy!
