This is one of my favorite dinner salads.  I love the combination of cherry tomatoes, kale, goat cheese, and couscous and depending on the season it can be served warm or cold.  For those who don't like goat cheese, try feta or fresh mozzarella instead or leave it out completely and add some nuts instead.
