Prep: 15 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups couscous
  • 4 oranges
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground allspice
  • 1/3 cup EVOO
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped pistachios
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the couscous with 1 3/4 cups very hot water. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the rinds from the oranges. Working over a large bowl, cut the segments between the membranes and let the fruit fall into the bowl. Squeeze any remaining juice into a small bowl; stir in the vinegar, cumin, cinnamon and allspice. Whisk in the EVOO.
  3. Add the couscous, pistachios, mint and scallions to the oranges. Stir in the vinaigrette and season.
