cup fresh basil leaves, torn

cup grated parmesan cheese

1 cup small fresh mozzarella balls

In a large bowl, combine the cooled couscous with the red onion, garlic, celery, tomatoes, basil, parmesan, mozzarella, olive oil and vinegar. Stir to combine, then season with salt and black pepper. The salad can be served immediately, but the flavors improve if it is allowed to sit for 30 minutes.
