Summer Couscous Salad

Yikes!  It has been a while since my last recipe post.  Even though this salad is most certainly not the mostcreative recipe I’ve ever made, it was extremely tasty, healthy, and exactly the type of food I crave in the middle of the summer. It can be put together in about 20 minutes or less and doesn’t require any standing over the stove, which is probably the last thing most of us feel like doing with all these crazy heat waves we’ve been experiencing.

In fact, this salad was put together simply by staring into my fridge and seeing what types of ingredients I could throw together.  After “cooking” couscous several times in culinary school, I’ve concluded it is probably the easiest grain to put together in a time crunch. 

You simply have to combine it with equal parts warm water (and a drizzle of olive oil + pinch of salt) and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes.  Once all the liquid has been absorbed, simply break it all up with your hands and use as desired.  Really, it’s that simple.
