Chopped Salad With Couscous

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 5 mins

This is inspired by a standard tabouli recipe, but the end result only remotely resembles tabouli. Make ahead and put in the fridge to chill. Keeps for a few days. Add ingredients to taste. Substitute and/or add things based on what's in the fridge or the garden. Makes 4-6 servings as a main dish, 8-10 servings as a side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the couscous in a heat-resistant bowl and add the boiling water. Let stand 5-10 minutes to fluff. Check consistency and add more couscous or water to desired consistency.
  2. While waiting for the couscous to cool, chop and mix together the remaining ingredients.
  3. Add the couscous and mix well.
  4. Serve immediately or let chill ahead of time.

This is delicious. I made it without the spinach but with everything else and really loved the couscous and veggies mix. I made 2 servings and am enjoying some now as I review. All of the flavors work so well together and it's so quick to put together too. It's a total win/win recipe for me. Made for Pick A Chef, Spring 2013

This is a perfect Summer meal. I Love the cranberries. I wouldn't have thought of that.
