My meal planning is based on what has been in my cupboards for awhile. This time I opened my cupboard and saw half a box of couscous left. I decided it was time to use it and make something of it. I searched recipes online but ended up made this one more on my own based on what was in my fridge I like having a variety of food in the fridge that's ready to eat. It is good to experiment with healthy grains.
1 cup of couscous
1/3 cucumber, seeded and chopped
1/2 yellow pepper
chopped chives and parsley
1/4 olive oil and half of that in red wine vinegar
salt and pepper
Cook couscous according to package instructions. Add other ingredients and mix together.
This is a nice salad to add as a side dish to a brown bag lunch. One combination is my leftover chicken dinner with couscous salad on the side. This can complement any dish.
