 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  Cups          Couscous -- (dry)
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
    1 1/4  Cups          Boiling Water
    1      Cup           Carrots -- diced
    1                    Bell Pepper -- diced
    1      Cup           Green Beans -- (cut) or wax beans
      1/3  Cup           Red Onion -- chopped
      1/3  Cup           Currants
      1/2  Cup           Almonds -- chopped
                         -----Marinade-----
      1/2  Cup           Oil
    4      Tablespoons   Lemon Juice
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
      1/4  Teaspoon      Cinnamon
    3      Tablespoons   Orange Juice
    4      Tablespoons   Fresh Parsley
    1      Tablespoon    Fresh Spearmint
 
 Put couscous and salt in large bowl; stir in boiling water. Cover
 and let sit for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally to fluff. Steam
 carrots, bell pepper and beans separately (instructions say this but I
 steam them all together). As soon as each vegetable is barely tender,
 add to couscous. Stir in red onions, currants and almonds. Whisk
 together marinade ingredients. Toss couscous and vegetable mixture
 with marinade, chill for at least one hour before serving.
