Tired of the same old picnic salad? Elbow macaroni and mayonnaise got you down? Try this salad for something with a little middle-eastern/subcontinental flair.

Toast the walnuts: Spread nuts on a baking sheet. Bake in a 400F for about 8 min., until the nuts start to turn darker. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together couscous, cranberries, curry powder, sugar, and salt. Bring the water to a boil. Pour the water over the couscous, stir briefly, then cover and let stand 5 min.

Fluff couscous with fork, then stir in oil, scallions, parsley, lemon juice, and toasted walnuts.

Serve chilled.
