I recently made a salad, switching out the couscous with quinoa (regular and red). I used raisins, toasted almonds, scallions, a bit of small diced red pepper, cilantro, and a vinaigrette. Just be sure to rinse the quinoa before cooking it or it could be quite bitter.
One can also bump up the nutritional value by using a whole grain couscous.

I made a great dinner last night. I cooked up some ground chicken. The I cooked up some couscous. Instead of water I used coconut water. I added pine nuts, dried cranberries and scallions to the couscous and drizzled a good EVOO over the top. the chicken topped the whole thing. I served it with a side of roasted brussel sprouts. It was a quick, cheap, tasty, filling, healthy meal.

I find scallions, nuts, and dried fruit are all good things to add to couscous.
