If you’re tired of serving the same old side dishes and are looking for something quick and easy this simple couscous salad is perfect! This salad can be prepared ahead of time and can be served warm or cold. I make up a double batch for the kids lunches and quick work meals. Be creative with your couscous salad by adding cooked chicken, legumes and other veggies of your choice. I just prep it all on a Sunday distribute it into containers and BOOM lunch meals for the whole weeks all you have to do is grab it and go.
- 1 1/2 Cups of Chicken or Vegetable Broth
- 1 Cup of Couscous
- 1/4 Cup of President’s Choice (PC) Roasted Garlic Olive Oil
- 1 1/2 Tbsp of Fresh Lemon Juice
- 1/4 to 1/2 Cup Green Onions (thinly sliced)
- 1/2 Cup Chopped Flat Leaf Parsley
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Bring broth to a boil. Once boiling turn off the heat and add the couscous. Stir it and put the lid on. Let stand for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile juice the lemon, chop the green onions and parsley. Set aside.
Once couscous is ready fluff with a fork and place into a medium bowl. Add the roasted garlic oil, lemon juice, parsley, green onion, salt and pepper. Mix it all together and that’s it!!
Spoon onto a plate and enjoy!!
