Mediterranean Couscous Salad
We wanted a way to incorporate all the fresh flavors of Mediterranean cooking into an easy weeknight side dish.
Why This Recipe Works
Our Mediterranean Couscous Salad recipe is a simple, herby salad to accompany all manner of dishes. Since couscous is already cooked, we just needed to hydrate it in hot water. We tossed the hydrated couscous with the vinaigrette while the pasta was still warm so that it absorbed the vinaigrette. Canned chickpeas tasted great and were a welcome addition to the salad, but we made sure to rinse them well to remove any tinny flavor left over from the can.
