This no-cook couscous salad is a delicious, hassle-free side dish that can be made on a moment's notice. It’s also perfect the next day for a brown bag lunch.
In a large bowl, combine the couscous and water, cover tightly with plastic wrap and let stand until the water is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Add the scallions, chickpeas, tomatoes, mint, lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper (12 turns on pepper mill) to the bowl and toss.
