Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare the couscous according to package directions, making sure to fluff it well with a fork when it's cooked.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt. Set aside.

  • Pour the prepared couscous into a large mixing bowl. Add the cranberries, blue cheese, scallions, and pecans and pour the dressing evenly over the top. Mix everything together lightly with a fork so the ingredients are lightly coated with the dressing and the mixture stays fluffy.

  • Taste the salad for seasoning, and add another pinch or two of salt if necessary.

  • For best results, prepare at least 2 hours in advance and chill it, covered, in the refrigerator before serving.
