This is so yummy and versatile; I came up with it during asparagus season, because I love salads with Israeli couscous. You can eat this as a salad for lunch, or it could also be a side. This makes 2 hearty lunch sized salads or 4 side dishes.
Israeli couscous, also sometimes called giant couscous, can be hard to find. If you can't find it, regular couscous may be used in this recipe - just prepare it according to the packet instructions before adding to the asparagus.
