(NAPSI)—A big help in putting your family meals, parties and cookouts on the fast track to fun, easy entertaining can be couscous, a tiny pasta that cooks in just five minutes.

Original, whole wheat and tri-color couscous is available from RiceSelect. This versatile ingredient can be excellent in side dishes, entrées and salads such as this:

Confetti Couscous Salad

Yield: 4 servings

1 cup water

1 cup RiceSelect Couscous

½ cup celery, chopped

½ cup carrots, shredded

¼ cup green onions, finely sliced

½ cup dried cranberries

¼ cup sliced almonds

¼ cup balsamic vinaigrette (or favorite salad dressing)

In saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in couscous; cover and remove from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork; cool. When couscous has cooled, combine with all remaining ingredients except for almonds. Mix well; chill until ready to serve. Add almonds just before serving.
