What is Couscous? Couscous is a type of tiny pasta made of wheat or barely. It's traditional to North African cuisine, but today couscous has become popular in American home-cooking. It's a great accompaniment to meat, especially meat stew, and it can also be used as filler in meat patties. Couscous is a great standby starch for anytime of the year, and it's a nice change of pace from white rice or potatoes.
Confetti Couscous Salad is a non-traditional couscous recipe, which we like to serve at potlucks or along side a nicely cooked piece of meat (see also our Spring Vegetable Couscous). If you're interested in a more traditional couscous recipe, check out our One-Pot Couscous recipe.
