Makes 2 to 3 side-dish servings

Looking for something to serve with baked chicken one night, Susan Brown improvised this nearly instant side dish from ingredients in her pantry.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 2- to 3-quart pan over high heat, bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil. Stir in couscous and basil. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand 5 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, and garlic. Fluff couscous with a fork and stir in peppers and olives. Add oil mixture and mix well.
