2 Springtime Southwest Couscous Salad


Spring time is just around the corner!

It's time to pull myself out of hibernation, go outside, feel the warm breezes and smell the fragrant flowers!


What foods make you think of spring?

Fresh veggies?  Sunny citrus fruits?   Bright, crisp colors?

If you said, "Yes," to all three, you are in luck!

I have a light and refreshing couscous salad that will tingle your taste buds and make your mouth happy!


Couscous, a light, and fluffy miniature pasta, is mixed in with my favorite springtime flavors: ripe tomatoes, black beans, sweet roasted corn, and tossed in a lime - cumin infused vinaigrette and topped with creamy diced avocados.


This recipe comes together quickly, easily, and tastes even better the next day, when the flavors have had the opportunity to mingle, creating a burst of flavors in each bite. 


Once you make this, you will find that even more of your favorite spring time foods will go well with this recipe.  Think of roasted red peppers, garlic, black olives, feta cheese ... and if you like "heat,"  try some jalapeno peppers.



You know what else will make you feel springtime good?
