Recipe: Summer Couscous salad


This salad is perfect for summer, and so easy to make!

What you need:
  • 1 c. dried couscous (I used tricoloured couscous)
  • 1/4c olive oil
  • 1/4c vinegar (you can use wine vinegar, ect if you prefer)
  • Oregano to taste (fresh is better, but dried works too)
  • Juice from one lemon
  • 1-2c diced salad vegetables - I used radish, celery, cucumber (seeded), broccoli and carrots



Prepare the couscous to according to directions, and while cooling mix up the dressing for the salad: oil, vinegar, lemon juice and spices. Then chop / dice all your vegetables. Mix everything together - the couscous will absorb the dressing, so don't worry if it doesn't seem like there is much. And, you can always add a little more here and there as needed for your preference.

Let cool and collect flavours in the fridge for a while, and then enjoy! This is a great way to use up little extra bits of veggies that you might have left lying around.

  2. Thanks for your comment Lauren - yes, couscous is so perfect for summer salads, since it really doesn't have a flavour, you can add whichever flavours you want! I think I might want to try lemon, dill and cucumbers next time!
