Julie's Couscous with Cherries & Walnuts (1 cup)

Submitted by: JLDUNHAM

Introduction

Warm couscous w/dried cherries, sundried tomatoes and walnuts for use as side dish with dinner. You can change the type of nut or dried fruit and cut the portion to 1/2 cup for less calories. I used dried cherries because I didn't have dried cranberries and walnuts because I ran out of pine nuts.
