Cilantro and Citrus Couscous Salad Recipe

Cilantro and Citrus Couscous Salad
Servings: 10

This recipe is adapted from one I found in the hospital magazine connected with the University of Michigan. The salad includes ingredients found in many southwest or Mexican-style recipes, but it is not spicy-hot. It tastes light and bright and is perfect for a summer lunch or picnic. For a more substantial meal, I sometimes toss in diced seasoned tofu or cubed,cooked chicken.
