Here’s a deliciously different side that features Israeli couscous cooked in a kickin’ combination of curry powder and a savory vegetable broth. It’s chilled before it’s mixed with raisins, toasted almonds, lemon juice, lemon zest and green onions. It’s uniquely flavored and would make an impressive party salad!
