Curried Couscous Salad

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is a unique side dish that's perfect for a warm summer evening. I created this for RSC #7. Add as much or as little curry as you please. You can use a red bell pepper instead of green, but the green makes for a more colorful salad. One reviewer also enjoyed this salad after adding a can of tuna. See the note in parentheses to make this dairy-free.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place couscous in a large bowl and pour boiling water over the top. Let it soak for 10 minutes to swell the grains, then fluff it with a fork.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the couscous and stir well to combine.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator, if desired, and enjoy!

I made this as directed to take to a family BBQ. I am not a curyy lover but I knew that some of the people at the gathering would really enjoy this salad. Everyone who tasted it said it would have been better with some additional curry powder-I had put in 1 1/2 tsp. Thanks for posting and good luck!

Would have liked more of other ingredients in this salad to give it more flavor and crunch, like a red onion and more tomato. I liked the curry powder in the salad together with the yogurt but after chilling it for an hour the dressing was soaked up by the couscous and no longer fluffy.

I thought this was a nice salad. Made this for supper tonight along with SweetPea (Stackey5LRC)'s Easiest Pork Chops In The World recipe#125115 they both went well together. The only thing I would do different again is add a little less curry. I do love curry but found it to be too much but for me if you love curry go for it !!! Great recipe thanks for sharing.
