Best enjoyed just slightly warm, pearl couscous is a tiny pasta made from semolina flour. Also known as Israeli couscous, it's much larger than its Mediterranean counterpart and adds a tender bite to this bright salad with dill-infused shrimp. We toss it with a lemon and oregano dressing, along with fresh spinach, tomato, and feta cheese for a perfect low-cal meal that's quick and easy.
