It is almost Memorial Day weekend and it is really just starting to get warm here on the east coast, gratefully. Welcome in some lighter springtime meals along with the warmer weather. I love this couscous salad and think you will too. It’s right up there with my quinoa and kale salads for a perfect alternative salad . Enjoy and let’s hope that this warm weather is here to stay! You can grill up some protein ( chicken, shrimp or fish) and add it to this delicious salad or serve alongside.
It’s springtime so I am thinking of lighter food, and of course salads come to my mind. I make this recipe with couscous or quinoa. I have another recipe for quinoa on my website so I figured that I would make one with couscous this time, but feel free to use either one. The dressing has a definite Greek flavor. This dish is perfectly tasty and served with grilled fish or chicken you have a perfect meal. As far as salads go, this one is perfection. This is not an exact science; if you like a lot of tomatoes, add more. If there is another item here that you don’t like, feel free to substitute, and I’d love to hear what you did. I love to hear variations on my recipes. This is so quick and easy to assemble. Can definitely be made ahead of time.
