Ingredients

    3/4 cup orange juice
    1 1/3 cups couscous
    1/3 cup raisins
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    6 tablespoons olive oil
    1 cup shredded or julienned carrots
    1/3 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
    1 (1 1/2-pound) piece cooked turkey breast, cut crosswise into thin strips
    3 cups torn fresh baby spinach

Directions

In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir in 1/2 cup of the orange juice, the couscous, and the raisins. Cover the pan, then remove it from the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed. Fluff the couscous with a fork and transfer the mixture to a large bowl to cool.

In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/4 cup of orange juice, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and the pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil until it's well blended.

Add the carrots, nuts, turkey, spinach, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the couscous. Pour in the dressing and toss to mix. Makes 4 servings.
