Couscous, date and orange salad recipe

Couscous, date and orange salad recipe: “The dates and orange in this salad provide significant sweetness.”

This is a great salad because you can really ring the changes with it. It has a lot of ingredients but if you don’t have one , you can substitute another. Like pepitas for pine nuts or even lightly roasted cashews. Yum. I have a thing about oranges at the moment..well, we all seem to have, really, because they are plentiful and taste great. So my sister has now developed a penchant for campari and blood orange juice and I have developed a thing for oranges in salad and my friend has a thing about orange cake. It’s been great because there are fantastic recipes around like this one which really freshens your palate on a hot day. I didn’t use the chicken stock either. I just used hot water and put in a handful of chopped mint. It really is tasty…and makes a good lunch dish as well as a good side dish for chicken.
