Couscous and Cucumber Salad With Buttermilk- Dill Dressing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by GaylaJ

I find both cucumbers and fresh dill to be especially refreshing when it's hot outside, so I think this light-tasting dish makes a great side during the heat of summer. Adapted from Cooking Light.

Nice, light and different, like a cucumber sour cream salad with couscous added to it. I used chicken stock for making the couscous and it did add the needed savouriness. Very nice accompaniment for seafood.
