Warm Salmon and Couscous Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Marina K

A recipe from "Clean Eating" magazine, spring 2008. This salad makes a wonderful lunch or light dinner, and has a spring-like freshness to it that makes it very appealing. Serve over a bed of baby spinach and garnish with lemon wedges if desired.

This was good, but a little light-it felt like something was missing. I chose to make it ino a salad with the salmon and couscous over a bed of baby spinach. Next time I'll drizzle a little vinaigrette over it to add some extra flavor.
