READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Moody

A woman I work with makes this for us for lunch all the time and I love it. So essentially I'm ripping off her own 'Spontaneous Couscous' combination.

Forgot to enter a 5-star rating with my review. This salad is the BEST!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion in the oil in a medium sized pan, for about 10 minutes, on medium-low heat until the onions are lightly browned.
  2. Add corn, couscous, beans, raisins and water.
  3. Cover and cook on low heat 5-8 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed and couscous is soft.
  4. Add everything else: the zucchini, carrots, green onions, celery, red pepper and almonds.
  5. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
  6. Serve warm, or even better, refrigerate and serve next day cold.
  7. You can substitute other beans.
  8. Turtle beans work well.
  9. Navy beans too.
