Lemony Couscous Salad with Cranberries

I made this salad and my family loved it. With the leftover, I used it as a filling for stuffed zucchini (or other summer squash). Really great.

I'm super impressed with this recipe. It is seriously tasty, simple to make, keeps in the fridge for days and travels well. I don't have any kidney issues so I don't know if it would be "unwise" for the intended audience, but doubling the amount of veggies and being generous with the cranberries just makes this BETTER. I cut the veggies into small pieces to go with the pearls and I added some sweet white onion. I've made double batches twice in less than 30 days and gotten rave reviews from everyone I have offered it to.
