About this Custom Cook

This Moroccan-inspired grain salad is full of a different flavors and textures. I used the chicken and cauliflower combo cook as the base, then added couscous, some almonds for crunch and oranges and raisins for some sweetness. The cinnamon gives the dish a background note of spice that's common in Moroccan cuisine. If you would like it, feel free to use dried apricots or dates instead of raisins. You could also substitute pistachios in place of the almonds if you would like. This dish is great served warm or at room temperature.
