Dried Fruit Couscous

    15 minutes

    Dried cherries, if you can find them, make a wonderful addition to couscous. If you can't find them you can always substitute dried apricots.

    Easy and delicious! Actually, it really doesn't get much easier than this... I just used a box of couscous and like others just added dried cranberries (to taste)which provide a really nice sweetness. This is great when you don't want to spend a lot of time on a side dish but want something that tastes good.  -  28 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very fast. We substituted Crazins (dehydrated cranberries)for the Cherries and everyone loved it.  -  20 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was great! What a great combination of flavors. I used dried raisins that were cherry flavored, like craisins, and it turned out perfect! Most importantly, it was so easy!  -  13 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
