READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Is there a better summer dish than couscous? Fast, easy and barely any cooking; this couscous salad has fresh summer vegetables all mixed together with a light lemon juice and oregano dressing. One of my favorite couscous preparations.

Absolutely delicious, and just the perfect meal for a warm summer evening. The cayenne makes this a bit spicy, which we enjoyed. It's going to be one of our favorites!
