  1. Bring water to boil in small saucepan. Add couscous and cherries. Cover, reduce heat and cook for 12 minutes. All liquid should be absorbed. Place couscous in bowl. Heat olive oil and saute the leeks. Should take about 5 minutes. Add vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper to bowl. Add toasted walnuts. Mix well and serve.
Recipe Notes

For the leeks I cut off the tops and bottom.  Slice in half and open the leek up and wash the layers.  There is dirt that is in between and I have found this is the easiest way to clean.
