Instead of the couscous, I made the Pike Place Market Salad (with cherries) as a side. It was a perfect pairing and absolutely extraordinary! UPDATE: Beware, if you are sensitive to sulphites! As great as this dish was, I suffered all night and into the next day with a massive headache. It's loaded with sulphites. I'm very allergic/intolerant to sulphites, and it never occurred to me that the dried cherries would be covered in the stuff (and the port and jam contain sulphites too), which is what I found out after some research. Sulphites can be very dangerous for asthmatics as well. I would like to make this dish again, but unfortunately won't be able to now. Had to change this from a 5 star to a 1 because of this.
