    Shuzbud's Note:

    This is a filling, low points salad. If you really want to make it lower points, cut the amount of couscous you use (my usual couscous is 9 points per cup). I actually use 1/3 cup couscous for 3 points and leave out the olive oil from the dressing to make it really lean. As written, this recipe provides a total of 12 points but using 1/3 cup couscous and no olive oil gives 3 points only. Serves 2 as a lunch or up to 4 as a side dish. Cook time includes half an hour for the salad to chill in the refrigerator. This is easy to increase for large groups or take-to-work lunches.

    1. 1
      Heat the broth to boiling, or crumble a stock cube into 3/4 cup boiling water and stir until dissolved.
    2. 2
      Add the couscous to the hot broth, cover and leave to "cook"- about 5 minutes. Then allow to cool while chopping the salad veggies.
    3. 3
      Quarter the cherry tomatoes and finely dice the cucumber, bell pepper and spring onions/ scallions.
    4. 4
      Make the dressing- pour into a small jug or bowl the olive oil and red wine vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper and whisk until the two liquids are completely blended together.
    5. 5
      Fluff the couscous with a fork.
    6. 6
      Add the salad veggies to the couscous and stir.
    7. 7
      Drizzle the dressing over and stir to mix.
    8. 8
      Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill and for the flavours to blend.
    9. 9
      Serve and enjoy!

      Wanted to keep this a veggie dish so used some homemade vegetable stock & it worked just fine! Seasoned the dressing with a bit of lemon pepper & we had a winning dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday's a Holiday tag]
