PLACE couscous with seasoning packet and cranberries in large bowl; pour boiling water (amount called for on box) over couscous. Stir in Juicy Juice. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand for about 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with fork.

ADD nuts, green onions, oil, parsley and lemon juice; stir well. Season with pepper. Best served at room temperature.

Cook's Tip: * Toast walnuts in medium skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, for a couple minutes. If you can’t find Mediterranean couscous, use 3/4 cup whole-wheat couscous and add 1 tablespoon ground curry powder, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon granulated sugar.
