Israeli Couscous Salad
I love Jason's Deli. LOVE it. I love to order a bowl of broccoli and cheese soup and then load up a plate at the salad bar with all of my favorite things. It usually ends up as a salad of a little bit of greens, and a lot of tomatoes, cucumbers, olives & artichoke hearts.
Last time I was there I saw israeli couscous on the bar for the first time in ages. So, I got a little plate and loaded it up with that. It was so delicious, and I was googling recipes to create it at home before we were even back in the car.
I looked at several, but this one looked the best. I made it last weekend, and I just finished making my second batch of it. This is seriously delicious, and is absolutely perfect for summer. It's great to have salad recipes (pasta, potato, grain, etc) that are warm weather friendly. This is one you can take to a picnic or barbeque, leave it out all day and it is still completely safe to eat. And did I mention it is really, really delicious? Because it is =)
