Mediterranean Couscous Platter

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This dish can easily be tossed together with ingredients from the pantry. If you are entertaining, arrange the ingredients like an antipasti platter.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • In a medium saucepan, bring the broth to a boil. Stir in couscous. Cover pan and remove from heat. Let stand about 10 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Fluff couscous with a fork, then toss with 1/3 cup of the vinaigrette.
  • To assemble, place couscous in center of a large platter or divide among serving plates. Arrange artichoke hearts, tomatoes, olives and chicken (or tuna or anchovies) separately but surrounding the couscous; drizzle with remaining 1/3 cup vinaigrette.

  • Tip:

    For additional flavor, toss the couscous with 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint.
