Notes

The original salad had garbanzo beans and lentils along with the Israeli couscous, but I used Trader Joe's Harvest Grains Blend which has Israeli couscous, orzo, baby garbanzo beans and quinoa. Feel free to substitute whatever legumes/grains you like. That's the beauty of this salad - you can mix and match to your heart's content!
