Tomato-Basil Couscous Salad




I have this great recipe for a couscous salad. It was written for 1 serving so I double everything as I will do here. You might want to alter a few of the ingredients to suit your taste.

1/14 c. cooked couscous, according to package directions
2 tomatoes, chopped
2/3 c. canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
4 scallions, chopped
2 t. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. fresh lemon juice
2 T. chopped fresh basil
Lettuce greens of your choice


Combine the couscous, tomatoes, chickpeas, scallions, oil, lemon juice, and basil in a bowl.
Toss, and serve on a bed of lettuce.

That sounds good. I love my couscous with cucumbers, tomatoes, frsh chives and green onions and lemon.
