HI, I appreociate your site! I am cooking for 75 people and am wondering how many oranges would I need to make a desert plate of moroccan orange salad. There will also be cake. Second, how many pounds of mixed greend for a green salad for 75. They are the light weight greens that come in 1 lb boxes. I need your feedback as soon as you can provide it. thank you so much!

About 40 oranges for a big platter of the salad. The greens, 1 box makes 6 plates, or serves 5-6 on a buffet if there are no other green salads.

I think your boxes might be different than the ones I am thnkng of. They are 1lb boxes. Can you please clarify if you are referring to 1lb boxes?
Second, how much cous cous for 75 people? This is the main carbohydrate exclusing a bread basket. thank you!

Hi, Cheryl,

Sorry, the local boxes are just 5 ounces. You need about 1- 1 1/2 ounces per person, depending on what else is added.

For cous cous:
1 cup dry couscous = 2-1/2 cups cooked.
As a side dish, plan on 1/2 to 3/4 cup cooked couscous per person. In your case, allow 3/4 cup
