Israeli Couscous with Dried Cranberries, Celery and Scallions ~

I love watching Anne Burrell's show, Secrets of a Restaurant Chef.  I like her style, her boldness, heck I even like her "man grunts".  She's unique and her recipes are wonderful.

This recipe is wonderful, either warm or cold.  I served it with simple slices of grilled chicken, even in the dead of winter.  Although, this day was warm, sunny and a wonderful 60 degrees farenheit.  In Boston and in January no less.

The way she cooks the couscous in salted water, bay leaves and blood orange peels was so interesting.  She inticed me to try it and I had most everything in the house.  I didn't have green onions, but chopped a half of yellow onion small and put it in with the cranberries and vinegar to sit for about 1/2 hour on the counter.  I think it took the bite out of the plain onion and made it work well.   I did doubt her love for plain celery here, but it was a fabulous addition, so nice and crisp.  I added julienned red leaf lettuce, because I didn't have any parsley either..... and it worked wonderfully.

So do give this dish a try, you won't be disappointed, I promise.

Here's the link to her recipe:

Mary, This looks absolutely delicious and believe it or not I think I have all the ingredients. This may be dinner. BTW, I really like Anne Burrell too. Her recipes always look wonderful. I have not come across a cookbook of hers but I will definitely be on the look out. Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe.

Thanks Carolyn,

I remember when Anne was a Sous Chef for Mario Batali on Iron Chef many moons ago. I love watching her show now, she had a great teacher and she spent time in Italy as well. :)

I loved everything on yesterday's show. I will try the pan seared Cod she made soon too.

Dried cranberry really makes this salad interesting.
