Couscous Walnut Cherry Salad
Tiny couscous grains are made from semolina, the same wheat product that is used in making pasta. Like pasta, it is dried, and has a subtle flavor that adapts well to a variety of flavorings and additions, and it is equally good served hot with a sauce or cold in a salad. For this recipe, use a box of plain couscous, without added seasonings. After a brief sojourn in hot water, it is ready to use.
