Raw Pomegranate Almond Couscous

I am one of those people who likes "one pot meals".  Well...one dish meals I guess is more the case because I usually don't cook much or use pots, just large bowls.  It is mostly just large green salads filled with veggies that are not pretty enough to share with you all, but I made the prettiest raw couscous last week that I decided was worthy of sharing.  Not just because it was pretty, but because it was delicious and so good that I honestly ate the whole plate myself.

What made it so good?  Well, I used celeriac as the base, which combined with the right ingredients tastes amazing and just as good as any cooked grain.  Also, I added in crunchy almonds, sweet tart pomegranate seeds, and aromatic spices and it was crave worthy.  Yes, I consider raw salads crave worthy, because that is what I find myself returning to every evening for dinner.  This one was just extra good, it seemed worthy to be served at a special occasion.  I hope you all try it out, I think you just might feel the same way!
