Couscous Salad

Happy Saturday everyone ๐Ÿ˜€ For the weekend I thought I’d share one of my favorite recipes with you. A couscous and chicken salad !! This salad is my all time favorite because it is so easy to make, and it is delicious. You can serve it for a dinner party instead of having a normal green salad, you can add this to your menu ๐Ÿ™‚


What you will need:

  1. Couscous
  2. Salt and pepper
  3. Olive oil
  4. Red onion
  5. Fresh tomatoes
  6. Cucumber
  7. Chicken pieces/breast
  8. Lemon and herb dressing

What I normally do is steam the chicken breasts until cooked right through, then I dice them into small squares. I then put boiling water over the couscous until covered and seal the bowl with a plate in order to keep the heat in the bowl. After about 5 minutes, check that the couscous is soft but not clumping together, and separate with a fork. You can then add in the olive oil, salt and pepper to mix the couscous together. Chop up the salad ingredients (cucumber, tomatoes and onion) into fine pieces and then add into the couscous bowl with the diced chicken pieces ๐Ÿ™‚ Serve with the dressing. I sometimes have a plain balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing too ๐Ÿ˜› Another note is that you can use Quinoa if you don’t like couscous or want an even healthier version ๐Ÿ™‚
