Couscous with Dill, Golden Raisins, and Pumpkin Seeds

I made this as a big batch and I was certainly glad I did.  It is an AMAZING snack throughout the day filled with fresh ingredients and hitting on so many cravings at once– while still being incredibly healthy.  It is another one of my go-to lunch options that I make on Sunday and eat throughout the week.

Couscous with Dill, Golden Raisins, and Pumpkin Seeds
Serves 10-12

Ingredients:
2 cups couscous (cooked according to package instructions)
1 yellow pepper, finely diced
1 bunch scallions, sliced thin
1 cup mixed pitted olives, roughly chopped
1 cup pepperoncini, thinly sliced
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup roasted and pumpkin seeds
1 cup chopped dill

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients.  Stir.  Yes, it is that simple! And couscous is one of my favorite grains because it cooks so fast.  If you chop fast, this is literally a 10 minute recipe.  Enjoy warm or as a chilled couscous salad.
