Cold Quinoa & whole wheat couscous salad.
There’s a place in town that makes a whole wheat couscous salad just like this but I have made a few alterations for health reasons and taste. It’s great on a day thats too hot to cook, or if you’re craving something light ,crisp and filling!
whole wheat couscous
Extra virgin olive oil
Cook 1/2 cup whole wheat couscous, after cooked let the couscous sit to cool
I had previously chilled and cooked quinoa, so I added 1/2 cup COOKED quinoa to the bowl,
Chop up cherry tomatoes, and cucumber. break up fresh basil leaves I used about 4 medium sized ones
Once the quinoa , couscous are cooled, add them to the bowl, mix in 1 tablespoon olive oil and squeeze fresh lemon juice onto the salad, mix add s&p to taste
