Directions:
  • Prepare Couscous as per package instructions. Usually you have to boil the water, turn off the heat and add Couscous. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes and separate it out with a fork.
  • Mix all the Salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Mix all Dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk it to mix properly. It is essential that you use very good Balsamic Vinegar. The taste will substantially be different depending on what Vinegar you used.
  • Pour the dressing over Salad and mix just before serving.

Enjoy !!
