1 pound Israeli couscous or orzo pasta (see notes)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 head (about 8 oz.) radicchio, rinsed, cored, and thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped shelled roasted pistachios
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup minced preserved lemon
Salt and pepper
How to Make It
In a 5- to 6-quart pan over high heat, bring about 4 quarts water to a boil. Add couscous and cook just until tender to bite, about 6 minutes (10 for orzo). Drain and rinse under cold running water until cool.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix vinegar and olive oil. Add couscous, radicchio, pistachios, parsley, and preserved lemon. Mix gently to coat, adding salt and pepper to taste.
