Healthy Cooking Confetti Couscous Salad

Submitted by: KDKOSMO

Introduction

Got this recipe from Healthy Cooking Magazine and it's SO GOOD! The original recipe calls for red bell peppers, I didn't have any on hand so I used radishes instead. I also used 2 cups of black beans I had already prepared, the recipe calls for 1 15-oz can of black beans. Got this recipe from Healthy Cooking Magazine and it's SO GOOD!

Ingredients

    1 cup dry Couscous
    1 cup Chicken Broth (use veggie broth to make this vegetarian)
    2 cups cooked black beans (if using canned, drain and rinse well)
    3/4 cup frozen sweet corn kernels, thawed
    5 radishes, diced
    6 green onions, sliced
    1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
    2 Tbsp plus 1 tsp Olive Oil
    2 Tbsp Lime Juice
    1 1/2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
    1/2 tsp Cumin
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1/4 tsp Black Pepper

Directions

In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Stir in couscous. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 5-10 minutes or until broth is absorbed. Fluff with a fork.

Into the cooked couscous, stir the beans, radishes, onions and cilantro. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, lime juice, vinegar, cumin, salt and pepper. Drizzle over salad and toss to coat.
