Tips

This cous cous is stickier than the fine kind, so I strained and rinsed it for a marinated salad.


Directions

Bring water to boil with salt. Add Cous cous, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10-12 minutes until water is absorbed. Rinse and place in fridge to cool. Meanwhile, prepare vegetables. Add veggies and seasonings. Toss with oil and vinegar. Adjust seasonings and dressing as needed.
