Tips
If you’re going to make this recipe ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator, you may need to add a little bit more olive oil and/or lemon juice when ready to serve. When made ahead, the couscous will absorb these ingredients over time.
Chopped chives add a fresh touch to this salad. For a little more “zing,” substitute chopped green onions.
