1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce, (recommend Mae Ploy)

Pour or squeeze the orange juice into a liquid measuring cup. Add all of the remaining ingredients, mix well and set aside.

Bring 1 and 1/4 cups of water to a boil in a small sauce pot. Add the couscous, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the oil, gently breaking up any clumps. Add the carrot, raisins, scallion and salt. Mix in the dressing and serve. Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days.
