Simple Couscous Salad Recipe

Simple Couscous Salad RecipeIn this video I will show you how I make this  colorful and delicious couscous salad. This salad is really simply to make, you literally can make this within 10 to 15 minutesFor this salad I used:
Water
Red onion
Yellow bell pepper
Black olives
Cilantro
Dried tomatoes
Fresh grape tomatoes
A bouillon cube
And couscousCook or boil hot water and add the bouillon cube to it, you can also use ready to use chicken or vegetable stock. But make sure that its hot.After the cube has dissolved add it to the couscous. I used about 1 cup of couscous and 1 cup of liquid. You don’t want to add too much water because otherwise it will become too mushy. To be sure of the amount of water that you couscous needs make sure to check the instructions on the packaging.Put the lid on the bowl and let it sit for about 10-15 minutesIn the mean time we will be cutting the vegetablesI started with the bell pepper, you can decide to use green orange or red bell peppers. You could even add a bit off all colors.  I went for yellow peppers because they are mild and slightly sweet in taste. Here I am cutting the tomatoes in cubes, I used grape tomatoes because that is what I had at that moment. But ideally you would use a beef tomato because its easier to cut in cubes Slice the onions very thinlyBy now the couscous should be ready, take your bowl, remove the lid and use a spoon or a fork to stir the couscousNow that there no lumps, add the cilantro. I used a herb scissor. If you don’t have one you can mince the cilantro on a cutting board. Mix the couscous with the cilantro and set it asideIn a different bowl, add the tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and olives.Then I used a regular scissor to cut the sun dried tomatoes. You could do this on a cutting board as well, using a knife. But I find this easier. Also I used sun dried tomatoes in oil because they are a bit softer. If you use sun dried tomatoes that are not in oil, but if you do make sure to soak them in lukewarm water for about 10 to 15 minutes to make them softerNow mix all the vegetables together and add the couscousMix the couscous with the vegetables, And there you have your salad!This salad tastes super good on its own, but you can add a dressing
