Couscous is great for make-ahead salads like this one. Turmeric lends a golden hue to the pasta, but it can be omitted.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare dressing, combine first 8 ingredients, stirring with a whisk.

Step 2

To prepare salad, bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan, and gradually stir in couscous, raisins, and turmeric. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Place couscous mixture in a large bowl. Add tomato and remaining ingredients. Drizzle with dressing; stir well to coat. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

I come back to this salad again and again. The golden raisens make it. Perfect for summer.

Very flavorful and satisfying. A nice make ahead recipe. I added some extra grated ginger and minced garlic to the hot water before adding couscous. A unique, but enjoyable flavor combination.

I thought this was really good, but I felt that it needed a little more of a kick. I might make more sauce and add more onion and mint next time.
