Though it makes for a great breakfast salad, this sweet-and-savory medley can be enjoyed any time of day. Serve it at room temperature for a lazy brunch, or make it the night before and chill in the fridge for a quick, cool morning meal.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup dry couscous
  • 2 cups kale, thinly sliced
  • 1 large peach, cut into ½-inch wedges
  • 1 cup seedless grapes, halved
  • ½ cup dried apricots, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan bring 2 cups water to boiling. Stir in couscous; remove from heat. Cover and let stand at least 15 minutes. Drain off any remaining liquid and fluff couscous with a fork. Transfer to an extra-large bowl to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, place kale in a steamer basket in a large saucepan. Add water to saucepan to just below basket. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Steam, covered, 5 minutes or until wilted. Add to couscous; cool 5 minutes.
  3. Add the next five ingredients (through vinegar) to couscous mixture; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Looks like the recipe was put on the website in June. However, it looks like a flexible recipe–maybe you could try another fruit that’s in season where you live. Can’t wait to try this!
