Slightly sweet because of the raisins and slightly tart because of the lemon, Confetti Couscous is a dish that I have made for years. I usually serve it with grilled pork tenderloin as it seems to be a grilling season kind of side dish.
Measure 1 cup of uncooked couscous and pour into a medium bowl.
Add finely diced red and green pepper to couscous.
Measure 1 cup of chicken stock in a 2 cup measure cup and add 3/4 of a cup of raisins to the chicken stock. Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until the chicken stock comes to a boil. Allow raisins to steep for a couple of minutes, then add the stock and the raisins to the couscous.
Cover bowl with cling wrap and allow to steam, for at least 5 minutes. Remove cling wrap and fluff couscous with a fork until it light and fluffy, tossing the raisins and peppers until well blended.
Drizzle dressing over couscous, mix, taste, then drizzle a bit more or to your liking.
