Whole-Wheat Couscous with Watercress
Whole-wheat couscous (with watercress) is a side dish that completes any meal. It not only has great nutty flavor, but whole-wheat couscous is a healthful choice — because it’s made from whole durum wheat, the couscous is high in fiber.
Whisk together oil, shallots, vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon, garlic, and ¼ tsp. each salt and pepper.
Bring broth, water, and ½ tsp. each salt and pepper to a boil in a saucepan. Off heat, stir in couscous, cover, and let stand until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
Fluff couscous with a fork and transfer to a bowl. Stir in watercress and zest, then toss with vinaigrette.
