How to Make It

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan; stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil; stir in couscous. Cover, remove from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

  2. Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, ginger, vinegars, and mustard, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, stirring with a whisk.

  3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil evenly over fruit. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until well marked; let cool. Cut the fruit into 1/4-inch cubes.

  4. Combine fruit, Simply Roasted Pork, onion, and cilantro in a large bowl, tossing gently. Stir in couscous. Drizzle vinegar mixture over couscous mixture, tossing gently to coat. Chill 1 hour.
