Servings
8 side-dish servings
Ingredients
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup couscous
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh jalapeno pepper*
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 9-ounce package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and cut up
1-1/3 cups chopped tomato
3/4 cup finely chopped green sweet pepper
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Instructions
1. Bring broth to boiling in a medium saucepan. Add couscous and onion. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in jalapeno pepper, cinnamon, and black pepper. Let the mixture cool.
2. Combine couscous mixture, artichoke hearts, tomato, sweet pepper, and raisins in a large bowl. Stir together olive oil and balsamic vinegar; pour over couscous, tossing gently to coat. Makes 8 side-dish servings.
*Note: Because hot peppers contain pungent oils, be sure to protect your hands when preparing them. Wear gloves or sandwich bags so your skin doesn't come in contact with the peppers. Always wash your hands and nails thoroughly in hot, soapy water after handling chili peppers.
