My family loves couscous and this fruity variation is one of our favorites. This is also delicious with other dried fruit such as cranberries and apricots.

Easy and delicious! Actually, it really doesn't get much easier than this... I just used a box of couscous and like others just added dried cranberries (to taste)which provide a really nice sweetness. This is great when you don't want to spend a lot of time on a side dish but want something that tastes good.

Very fast. We substituted Crazins (dehydrated cranberries)for the Cherries and everyone loved it.

This recipe was great! What a great combination of flavors. I used dried raisins that were cherry flavored, like craisins, and it turned out perfect! Most importantly, it was so easy!
