Fruit Studded Couscous

I almost can't call this a recipe it's so easy.  I love couscous and one of my favorite things to add to couscous is dried fruit and nuts. This goes incredibly well with pork.

Fruit Studded Couscous
Serves 6-8

2 boxes of couscous (I used whole wheat)
1 tablespoon chopped dried apricots
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped dried cranberries
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped golden raisins
2 tablespoons chopped almonds (pecans, pine nuts or walnuts would all work)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon orange juice (not necessary but adds a note of brightness)

Directions: Boil water according to package instructions.  Just as water is boiling add the chopped dried fruit.  Add couscous and allow to sit for 5 minutes.  Fluff with fork and add olive oil and chopped nuts.  If desired add OJ, stir fruit and nuts are mixed well.
