Couscous Salad

I made this really easy couscous salad last night and we loved it. It was really easy to put together too!

1.25 C Couscous, soaked in 2 C hot salted water
1 small Onion, finely chopped
1 small Roma Tomato, chopped
0.5 Red Bell Pepper, diced
1 Can Garbanzo beans, drained
2 Limes, juiced
a handful of Cilantro, chopped
2-3 Tbsp Green Olives
1 Tbsp Olive oil(optional)
Salt and Pepper

Toss everything together after the couscous is cooked. Black beans or Kidney beans would also work very well in this recipe.

  1. Just used this recipe to make my first couscous salad and I love it! I didn't have any garbanzo beans to put in it, but it's still pretty substantial. I subbed the red peppers with green peppers and added some delicious feta cheese! Thanks Inji =)
