Who hasn’t opened their crisper to find that forgotten bag of muck formerly known as cilantro? With this simple prep-ahead recipe, bunches of fresh herbs pull double duty, acting as both the lettuce stand-in for the salad itself and as the base of a bright and herby sauce that would also be great spooned over seared or grilled fish.
TIP: Israeli couscous is a small cut of pasta. If you cannot find it at your local grocery store, you can substitute orzo or acini di pepe.
