Israeli Couscous and Tuna Salad

Last night I made this recipe from Ina's Foolproof Cookbook - Israeli Couscous & Tuna Salad
It was so good that Grant Ooh'ed and Aah'ed and proclaimed, "You could sell this!"
I don't know what that means exactly, since I, in fact, bought this, but I took it as a huge compliment. 
He also pronounced it "Coo Coo" when he was helping me make it, but that is really neither here nor there. It's just cute.
I highly recommend this recipe.  It has so many vibrant flavors but none of them were too sharp or too overpowering.  I used sun-dried tomatoes instead of roasted red peppers because I had them on hand (thanks mom!).
This was my first time experiencing Israeli Couscous and I am in love!  It is so light and airy and cute and petite.  All the things I wish I was, wrapped up in a teensy weensy pasta.  It also looked gourmet and only cost <$2 for the bag so you best believe I'm going to be back for more.
This is my photo of the creation:
This is the photo from Food Network just to prove it can look good and not like dark question mark:
