COUSCOUS AND VEGGIE SALAD: BEAUTIFUL AND DELICIOUS

by May 18, 2021

When I wrote the original post about this salad, it was with a bit of tongue in cheek because I have always subscribed to the “MORE than enough” menu-planning concept. I would ask Allen, before a party, “Do you think we have enough food?”. He would always nod and just say, politely, “Yes, dear.” But I know in my heart that he was silently rolling his eyes and thinking, “I can’t believe you are asking me this again–we always have enough food!” I don’t ever remember a time when he said, “No, dear, I think you have to make more food.”

This dish (in and of itself) is an example of providing MORE than enough salad in one sitting. You will need friends to help finish it all, unless you like to eat the same thing for a week.

Choose the vegetables that you love, and keep an eye on the beautiful colors you can add. Then you can “eat the rainbow” in one salad. Be sure to try this with whole wheat couscous; I think it really gives the dish more flavor: COUSCOUS SALAD

Menu suggestions to go with this:

Whiskey Salmon, and Parmesan Baked Tomatoes Or Try: Grilled Burgers and Tarragon Vegetables

“Uhh, what’s Jicama?” was Allen’s response the first time I told him we were going to have Jicama (pronounced HEE-kah-mah) in a salad.  Jicama is a globe-shaped root vegetable with a light brown, papery skin, and white interior.  I have heard it described as a cross...

Farro is one of my favorite grains: easy to cook, holds up well in a salad, has a great nutty flavor and chewy texture.  Personally, I think it is the most satisfying of grains that are good for us. It is also versatile, inexpensive, readily available, and sits nicely...

THE NEVER-ENDING SIDE DISH: STREGA NONA IN MY KITCHEN

WHEN WILL I EVER LEARN?! Sometimes I cook more than one person can eat, and I live alone.  Did I say “sometimes”?! Well, okay, most of the time. If I don’t freeze the leftovers, I diligently try to give food away to family and friends.  One evening, I decided I wanted...
