Couscous Salad

In an effort to be healthy (and get rid of a TON of cilantro), I present: couscous salad.

Measurements are approximate!


  • 1 1/2 cup couscous
  • 2 3/4 cups water
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • splash of olive oil
  • salt to taste

Let's do it!

  1. Boil water and add in couscous. Stir and let it soak up the water.
  2. Add everything else and mix well.
  3. Stick in the fridge and let the flavours meld for at least half an hour.
  4. Taste and season as needed.
  5. For a balanced meal, add some kind of protein. I added a delicious canned salmon that my friend made. The Hubster added hard boiled eggs.
