If you haven’t tried Israeli couscous, you should, because it’s dope. It tastes like pasta, has a slightly chewy texture, and makes an awesome addition to a salad. Pick it up from your local market, or try this one from Trader Joe’s. After discovering my love for Israeli couscous, I instantly started messing around with it, developed this salad recipe, and I’ve made it countless times since.
One of my favorite things about this salad, is it isn’t just a salad. It also works great as a burrito/wrap filling, or a chunky dip for chips. Play around with the ingredients you have on hand, and enjoy a colorful and filling lunch.
