This is easy and gets rave reviews. With its very nice blend of flavors, this illustrates how slight additions make flavors work together. Taste it before and after you add the salt and the vinegar. The difference is very clear, yet you can't really identify salt or vinegar flavors.
I put this dish together after having something similar at someone else's house. The amounts are approximate -- this is a dish to taste and tweak as you go!
2 cups of cooked couscous
1/4-1/2 c of roughly chopped dried apricots
2-4T of raisins
1/4-1/2 c. chopped parsley (cilantro would be good, but different).
1/4-1/2 c pine nuts. (Toast the pine nuts lightly in a dry pan to add flavor)
2T or so olive oil -- enough to add flavor and keep grains from sticking together
Combine all ingredients. . Add salt to taste (enough to bring up the flavor, not enough to taste salt) and a dash of wine vinegar (enough to brighten the flavor, not so much that you taste vinegar).
Refrigerate overnight (this lets the flavors meld and lets the apricots and raisins hydrate). It's best to bring to room temperature before serving.
