In a small amount of olive oil, saute the onion and the optional garlic
until the onion is soft but not quite transparent.

* Pita-Seafood Salad Sandwiches This recipe is more of a formula than a
recipe. It is excellent for a cool dinner in the summer (any time after
February in Texas!) Yield: Serves 2-4.

* You could substitute almost any vegetable and crab or a firm fish. To
use this for a picnic, don't stuff the pita bread until you are about to
serve it. Err on the side of too much oil, since the couscous absorbs the
oil (and a recent study says that olive oil may be good for you).

: Difficulty: easy to moderate.
: Time: 30 minutes preparation, overnight chilling.
: Precision: no need to measure.
