Couscous Salad

BM # 17   Day 2

I had been reading about couscous  but I actually got to taste it on my holiday in London.Ever since wanted to try this salad, Finally I spotted it in the supermarket and here I am with this salad.Absolutely apt for the summer heat.

 ½ cup........ raisins
 ¼ cup......... orange juice
 ¼ cup......... lemon juice
 ¼ cup......... olive oil
 ½ tsp.......... salt
 ¼ tsp.......... cinnamon
 ¼ tsp ..........cayenne pepper, to taste
 3 cups........ vegetable broth / water
 1 ½ cups.... couscous, uncooked
 1................... red or yellow ,green bell pepper, cubed
 ¼ cup......... shredded purple cabbage
 1................... red onion, diced
 ¼ cup......... chopped fresh coriander

Whisk together the raisins, orange juice, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, cinnamon and   cayenne until well mixed.
 Boil the vegetable broth and add the couscous.
 Cover, remove from heat and let stand for 8 to 10 minutes, or until couscous is done.     
 Fluff couscous with a fork and allow to cool.
 Add veggies and dressing.
 Serve chilled.
