Couscous is a great "fast-food". Boil water, add the couscous, wait 5 minutes and it's done. The following salad can be created in very little time and is tasty and healthy. Couscous is a grain that has little flavor on its own (somewhat like rice) so can be used in both salty and sweet dishes.
Easy, fast, healthy and delicious! This perfect weeknight dish takes less than 30 minutes, so it's a regular in our house. You can vary the heat by the kind and amount of chile powder and hot peppers you use. Serve over hot cooked rice, if desired.
This recipe for the best ever bacon, raisin and broccoli salad is slightly altered from one posted by Martha Carey in a site from Panama, "La Cocina Paraiso" (The Paradise Kitchen). It's a healthy dish, full of vitamins and antioxidants. I won't try to persuade you that it's better than ice cream, but given the choice, I might choose this scrumptious salad.
