Mediterranean Cous Cous Salad
July 12, 2013 § 2 Comments
I’m not a huge recipe repeater. In fact, in my first year or marriage I don’t think I made the same thing twice, except for pizza. I just really love trying new things and mixing it up. I’ve mellowed from that a little bit but not a ton; I’d rather make something new most days.
The reason I told you that is to emphasize that when I say I’ve made this four times in a month and a half you realize that’s a big deal. This salad is REALLY GOOD. It’s become my go to potluck, picnic, lunch thing. Try it. You’ll see.
Back to the salad. It’s got some great ingredients and is perfect for summer. It doesn’t involve a stove, is good warm or cold and you can use fresh basil and tomatoes. If you add some grilled chicken you’ve got a main course too.
