Good for dessert, this dish also makes for a cheery wake-up in the morning. Select your favorite lemon cookies or lemon bars as an after-dinner pairing, or serve lemon-flavored muffins for breakfast. Chilled, tart lemonade underscores the citrus accent.

  • 1/2 cup lemon juice, preferably fresh
  • 1/3 cup sugar, or to taste
  • 1 tsp. lemon extract
  • Grated zest 1 lemon
  • 1 10-oz. box quick-cooking couscous
  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups (about 7 oz.) green seedless grapes
  • 3 8-oz. containers nonfat lemon yogurt or lemon-flavored soy yogurt
  • 6 kiwis, peeled and cubed
  • Mint leaves for garnish, optional


  1. Combine water, lemon juice, sugar, lemon extract and lemon zest in large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook couscous according to package directions.
