Description

What makes this salad evocative of San Francisco? The colorful combination of chicken, red and orange bell pepper, watercress, and mango, with cheese and couscous rounding out the components. The couscous is infused with the flavor of spearmint tea and also topped with a vibrant paste made by grinding together fresh cilantro, red chili pepper, and spinach, and more cilantro is sprinkled on top of the salad just before serving.
