Rainbow Couscous Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Tryntje

I love couscous, and what could be more easier to make, than this for last minute barbeque invitations or pot luck dinners. Eat and enjoy. Could substitute rice for couscous.

I really enjoyed this salad. However, I did add a little bit of sugar to the dressing because I found the vinegar to be a bit strong. I also added ground black pepper and a dash of garlic powder, and went lightly on the curry powder (personal taste). Enjoyed this salad alongside barbequed chicken. Would also be good to add cooked, shredded chicken to the salad for a nice lunch:) ~Manda
