Couscous Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Pierre Dance

I've changed this so much over the years and I'm at a loss to remember where I got it. It's especially good with grilled fish, pork, chicken, or kabobs.

This is a wonderful recipe. I boiled the water in a saucepan and then added the couscous, removed from the heat, covered it for 5 minutes. I omitted the onion, carrots. I used a red bell pepper. I'll have to do this recipe again soon. Thanks Pierre Dance :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game
