Giant Couscous Salad

This is one of my favourite salads. I like the mix of the soft couscous with the crunchy vegetables and pecans and the soy, mirin and red onion dressing is amazing. Giant Couscous, is not in fact couscous at all. It is made from small balls of pasta and it has a lovely bouncy texture. All ages are going to love this one!
