Israeli Couscous Salad

First time cooking with Israeli couscous, and I think I prefer the larger, chewier grains for preparations such as this cold salad.

1 package Israeli couscous (mine was from Trader Joe’s)

half a red onion, minced

five scallions, chopped

zest and juice of one lemon

nuts (mine was a mixture of almonds and sunflower seeds)

salt and pepper

large handful of mint, roughly chopped

good olive oil

dash of red pepper flakes

Cook couscous according to package directions. Spread out on baking sheet and chill for ten minutes or so.

Combine with remaining ingredients, to taste. Let marinate and come to room temperature. Serve.
