Date and Dried Cranberry Couscous

INGREDIENTS
1 cup couscous
1½ cups warm water
10 dried dates
½ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup whole pecans, toasted
2 green onions, green parts only
2 handfuls fresh mint leaves
½ lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS
Put the couscous in a medium bowl; pour the water over it, stir with a fork to combine. Cover and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes, then uncover and fluff with a fork. Put the dates, cranberries, pecans, green onions and mint on a cutting board and coarsely chop everything up; add this to the couscous. Add lemon juice, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.
