1 package regular couscous
1/4 cup walnut oil (can use other oil)
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons honey Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 large Honeycrisp, Gala or Pink Lady apple, diced
1/3 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup chopped dry toasted walnuts
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
Prepare couscous according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, vanilla, and salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Stir apples, celery, dates, nuts and dressing into couscous. Top with blue cheese.
For a gluten-free option, make up a package of quinoa. Tri-color quinoa would be nice.
Also, if you have regular Dijon mustard, feel free to use it and add more honey to taste to the salad dressing.
