Dice cucumber, tomato, and herbs, Toast chopped pecans by placing them into a dry skillet. Cook pecans on medium heat, stirring, until they become fragrant. This takes 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat when done (to save time, you can toast pecans while couscous is cooking).
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add couscous; continue to cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. While couscous is cooking, make the lemon dressing.
Make salad dressing by whisking olive oil, Dijon, salt, pepper, lemon zest, lemon juice, and honey in a medium sized bowl.
Once couscous has finished cooking, drain it (but do not rinse). Immediately pour warm couscous into a serving bowl. Pour salad dressing onto couscous. (the salad will absorb more of the salad dressing if combined while warm). Stir to fully combine.
Add diced tomatoes, cucumber, toasted pecans, cranberries, raisins and chopped herbs to salad. NOTE: The recipe for this lemon herb couscous salad calls for 1/2 cup total of fresh chopped herbs. I used flat leaf parsley, basil (3-4 leaves), dill (2 Tablespoons) and 4 mint leaves. You can use any combination of fresh herbs that you prefer, adding up to 1/2 cup total.
Once the lemon herb couscous salad is mixed together, it is ready to serve! Garnish salad, if desired, sprig of fresh dill or parsley. Serve and enjoy!
