This is so easy to fix (boil water and wait a few minutes). It can then be put in the refrigerator and eaten for a couple of days with no heating or preparation.

1. Couscous (I like the whole wheat variety, but most use plain) - 1 cup if you want to make more at a time just be sure to use equal portions of liquid to the couscous. The directions call for more liquid then 1:1, which makes it more plump but I like the texture from less liquid.
2. Chicken broth - 1 cup (you can use water, vegetable stock, or beef broth - depending on your tastes - I like the chicken broth).
3. assorted dried fruits - 4 oz (I like a sweetened packaged mixture of apples, raisins, cherries, etc. - it gives a nice taste to the salad).
4. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
5. 1 teaspoon of salt.

1. Pour the liquid in a pan with the fruit, olive oil, and salt - stir and slowly heat until it just starts to boil, then stir in the couscous.
2. Take off the heat once the couscous is stirred in, cover with a lid, and wait 10 minutes (the directions say 5 but i wait a little longer).
3. Spread the pasta out into a container and fluff with a fork to make sure there is no clumping. Taste it - salt if needed. It may also be slightly sweet from the fruit.
4. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes then fluff with a fork again, cover and put in the refrigerator.
Serve and eat - preferably after chilled - I hope you enjoy it.
