Dried cranberries complement the sweet and tangy dressing on this salad, while roasted peanuts contribute a nice crunch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 3/4 cup water to a boil in a saucepan; stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 2

Cook edamame according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain.

Step 3

While edamame cooks, combine orange juice and next 5 ingredients (through pepper), stirring well with a whisk. Add edamame, spinach, and next 3 ingredients (through cranberries) to couscous. Pour orange juice mixture over salad; toss to coat. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.

Very, very yummy. I think purple onions would make a colorful substitution for the green onions.
