Cold Couscous Salad

Posted on 06 Sep 2014

I really enjoy couscous and while it’s often best in warm dishes, it makes a great pasta salad too; pasta salad it needn’t always be some mayo-dressing + macaroni. Couscous mixed with a bunch of chopped vegetables & herbs in a vinagrette and served cold makes a great meal (or side dish).

You can make this salad with almost any crisp vegetable you like (or combinations of vegetables), you don’t have to use all the ones I list in this recipe.
