This Israeli couscous (also known as pearl couscous) salad, provided by Jan Laird of Jan’s on 4th Cooking School, is a great recipe for whipping up an easy side dish in the summer. Pasta salads (yes, couscous is a pasta—though I did have to reconfirm that for myself before I wrote this) are perfect for bringing to picnics or outdoor lunches at home, when something cold is often what sounds the tastiest. Serve this alongside grilled fish, fowl or veggies, and use the leftovers to stuff roasted peppers or squash the next day. This Friday, May 4, check out Jan’s class on grilling and smoking from 6 to 9pm. Visit to learn more about the one-day class and sign up.
