I think Jenny from Picky Palate was on to something when she called this great meatless dinner idea Almond Artichoke Summer Couscous, because couscous is a perfect summer dish. Not only does it cook in five minutes, but there are endless variations of good summer foods that make good flavorful additions to couscous. Jenny is using almonds, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, arugula, and parmesan, but you could vary the ingredients according to your own taste for a perfect light summer meal.
