Mediterranean Cous Cous Salad


  • 1 cup of any couscous (I prefer whole wheat like this)

  • 1 chopped bell pepper

  • 1 handful of chopped red onion

  • 2 handfuls of chopped cherry tomatoes

  • Small handful of chopped basil

  • Small handful of chopped parsley

  • Handful of sliced or slivered almonds

  • Optional sliced greek/kalamata olives

  • s&p to taste

  • optional hummus on the side or drizzle of olive oil for serving


Cook the couscous following box instructions. While it cooks, chop your veggies and herbs. Set couscous aside to cool or pop in the fridge for a few minutes. Add all remaining ingredients to couscous gently tossing until everything is mixed in, adding s&p until desired taste.

I like serving with a dollop of garlic hummus and additional sprinkle of basil.
