Couscous Salad

This is my recipe , it is a fusion of salad and Arabic couscous. Some of my friends said they don’t get couscous in India you could try substituting couscous with bulgar wheat ( dalia)  and cranberries I guess can be replaced by rasins .This salad is very filling and can easily substitute your lunch or dinner. I had first seen couscous on Nigella’s TV show 6 years back  and am using it since.
