Curry Pea Dip Recipe:
I found this recipe in Real Simple Magazine a ton of years ago and we fell in love with it.  It is easy, healthy and fast to make!  I could not find the  link to the recipe, but this is how I made it today:

Into food processor put:
1-2 cups Frozen Sweet Peas (thawed on counter for 30 minutes or so)
3 Scallions
1 tsp Curry
1 tbsp EVOO
Salt, to taste

Couscous Salad Ingredients before adding the Couscous

Whole Wheat Couscous Salad Recipe:
Into bowl add & mix:

Zucchini, finely diced
Red Onion, sliced
Black Beans (canned, drained & rinsed)
Chick Peas (canned, drained & rinsed)
Cilantro, chopped
Juice from 1/2 Lime
Toasted Almonds
Gala Apple, finely diced
Raw Corn, cut from 1 Cob
Trader Joe's Balsamic Vinaigrette
Cooked Whole Wheat Couscous

I didn't measure anything, I just threw everything together, though I'd say it was probably 1/2-1 cup of most ingredients and 2-3 cups of Couscous, more or less.  The pic above is all the ingredients and dressing mixed before adding the Couscous, which actually would have been a very good salad in it's own right!
