This light and delicious salad is packed with protein, vitamins, and fiber. I tried this while visiting a resort in Marco Island and could not wait to recreate it myself. This salad is the perfect dish for a light lunch or a side dish at dinner. Your vegetarian friends will thank you for serving this at any dinner party or BBQ.

Couscous Primavera

This is a healthy, delicious, and easy side dish that takes about 10 minutes to make. I'm borrowing the name from Pasta Primavera which, like this recipe, takes advantage of fresh, seasonal, green produce.

Rosemary Chicken Couscous Salad

Rating: Unrated
This is a wonderful summer salad. Fresh herbs keep the salad light, while the chicken and feta cheese make it hearty enough to serve for a main meal. Use as a side dish by omitting the chicken and adding chopped artichoke hearts. The salad also works wonderfully with grilled salmon or chicken.

Couscous with Olives and Sun-Dried Tomato

Rating: Unrated
A delicate, flavorful dish that will satisfy vegans and carnivores alike! Inspired by my family's deep Coptic Orthodox Christian tradition, this is a great meal alternative during strict fasting times. It contains no animal products or fats, but has enough flavor and visual impact to make you feel like you're not sacrificing a thing! I hope you will enjoy this recipe. Add chicken or prawns to make this vegan dish a carnivorous delight!

Pearl Couscous Salad

Rating: Unrated
This is a take-off of a pricey deli salad that my family loves. Using ingredients at home, it is much more affordable so we can enjoy it more often. Store salad in the fridge, covered, for up to a week.

Lemon-Pepper Salmon

Simple, tasty and fast! Salmon is sauteed with all ingredients at once, and served over couscous. Great with a spinach salad.
