It was finally nice enough to eat alfresco tonight, like my house has been planning to do ever since we discovered there’s a park two blocks from the house. To make things even better, it was the perfect summer meal: salad with chicken, bread & brie, lemonade, oatmeal cookies, and this wonderful orange couscous with blueberries. The couscous dish was cool, sweet, and delicious. So I thought I would share the recipe (which comes from my housemate, Emily).

Orange Couscous with Blueberries

2 cups raw couscous

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups orange juice

1 tsp orange zest

1 can mandarin oranges

1 pint fresh blueberries

Combine couscous, salt, & 2 cups boiling water. Stir; let stand 2 minutes; add OJ 1 cup at a time stirring. Allow couscous to absorb liquid for 10 minutes. Taste; add juice or salt if necessary. Add zest, oranges, & stir. Add blueberries; stir. Serve at room temp.
