Couscous Salad Recipe


Couscous Salad

2 cups cooked couscous, cool to room temp
1 scallion, thin sliced
1 small cucumber, peel, seed and small dice
1 tomato, diced
1 small bell pepper, seed and dice
1/4 cup mozzarella or feta (optional)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine or 1 tbl. balsamic vinegar
basil, oregano and pepper to taste

In a small bowl or cup, whisk together oil and vinegar. Mix in garlic and scallion and seasonings and set aside. Mix cooled couscous and vegetables. Add cheese and fold gently. Drizzle in dressing as you gently fold. Refrigerate until serving. Top with red peppers or pimentos for garnish.

Serving Suggestions: This salad really goes with any meal but especially well with hummus and pita bread, lamb kebabs or falafel. It is very filling and can be doubled indefinitely to feed a large crowd.
