Servings 4


  • 1 1/3 cups whole wheat couscous
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sliced fresh apricots
  • 1/3 cup finely sliced red onion

Make the Couscous:

  1. In a medium saucepan combine 2 cups of water along with the olive oil and salt and bring it to a boil.

  2. Stir in the couscous, remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes.  Fluff with a fork and place in a large bowl to cool until it reaches room temperature.

Assemble the Salad:

  1. Once the couscous has cooled, add the apricots, red onion, mint and almonds. Toss to combine.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, white wine vinegar and melted honey.  Drizzle the dressing on top of the salad, toss together and serve.
