Mandarin Couscous Salad
I always make a Mandarin Couscous Salad to accompany our Christmas dinner. It is fresh and full of flavor and makes use of mandarins – the symbolic Christmas fruit! There was a time when an orange was an exotic fruit in Europe and people would receive them as a treat in their Christmas stocking.
In this recipe, canned mandarin segments are combined with couscous, peas, almonds and onion. A dressing made from vinegar, oil, sugar, salt and hot pepper sauce brings this fresh, citrus salad together.
