Thanks to Debbie Lui, we have this delicious fresh Spring Couscous salad!

Preparing a spring salad is simple – all you need are fresh leafy greens, vinegar, and oil. But, you can add more flavor and texture with this Spring Couscous Salad!  Couscous are tiny granules made from crushed durum wheat that have a fluffy texture and complements a wide range of natural flavors. Couscous has a medium glycemic index (GI) level, but serving with veggies helps to decrease the GI level even further!

  • 2 cups couscous

  • A few basil leaves
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
