You ever find yourself in a situation where you’re supposed to be at that potluck in like an hour, you’ve still got to get ready and you haven’t even prepped anything to bring?
Got it covered!
While this one can be made for use on the fly, the flavors still meld best when it has a while to set up in the fridge.
1 ½ Cups (French) Couscous
1 tsp Sea Salt
4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3-4 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar or White Balsamic Vinegar or Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Cucumber, Peeled & Chopped
2 Sweet Peppers, finely diced (your choice of colors)
1 Large Tomato, diced
4 Green Onions, Sliced
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Bring water to a boil then turn off. Stir in salt and couscous and allow to sit 5 minutes (longer if using Israeli Couscous)
Fluff with a fork and set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, toss prepared couscous in oil and vinegar. Add remaining ingredients and toss to combine.
Refrigerate for an hour or longer to allow flavors to meld and salad to cool.
