Cous Cous Salad


One of our favorite meals around here is a couscous salad I've come up with. Burl absolute loves it and would eat it nearly every night if he could.

It goes a little something like this:

Several cups of prepared couscous
2 cups garbanzo beans
1 red bell pepper
1 carrot
1 tomato
1 jalapeno
1/2 cup cilantro
1 cup raw slivered almonds
1/2 cup green onions
2 lemons, the zest and juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon cumin
salt

Of course you can make is as spicy as you like, and add or omit ingredients to your liking.

Enjoy!
