Couscous, Fruit and Arugula Salad

1 2/3 cups water
1 cup couscous
1/4 cup fresh parsley -- minced
1/2 cup basil, fresh -- packed, then cut in ribbons
1 bunch arugula -- cut in ribbons
1 1/2 cups red grapes -- seedless, cut in half
2 mangos -- peeled and diced
1/4 cup walnuts -- toasted
1 pound leftover pork loin or smoked turkey, optional -- fat, skin etc removed. Diced
Grapefruit Juice Dressing


Boil water. Add couscous. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes, fluff then put aside to cool (refrigerator is best). When cool add fruits, greens and optional meat. Dress with dressing and serve.


Notes: you can toast walnuts in the microwave. They take about a minute in mine. Do not substitute the Arugula. The taste is necessary for this salad. If you use whole wheat couscous you'll need more water. Wash the basil, parsley, arugula well then spin dry before cutting.


Serves 4 as a main course if you use the meat and serve with bread.
