Couscous Veggie Salad

When I was pregnant with my daughter Nia, fresh veggies were my number one craving.  For some reason I didn't like sweets.  This was pregnancy number two and taste buds were much different this time around.  I guess it was a good craving because all I wanted was healthy food.  This couscous salad was something my husband made for me one night.  I was hooked!

Osem Israeli Couscous cooked

I use the Osem Israeli Couscous because it is much thicker and larger then the cousous you normally see from other companies.  I bought mine from Target.  If you are enjoying this for yourself then you can just make a cup of it.

Fresh Cucumber, Yellow Pepper, Red Pepper

While the couscous is cooking you can go ahead and chop up your veggies.  I chose a yellow pepper, red pepper, and a cucumber.  You can add any fresh veggie that you want.  I happen to like the crunchiness of peppers and cucumbers.  

Mix it up

I used a food storage container to mix everything up.  After you let your couscous cool off, throw it in the container with all your veggies.  I added some olive oil, salt, and pepper to mine.  Give it a good shake.  Put the finished product in your bowl and enjoy.  It's simple, fast, and healthy.  Well healthier then grabbing the cookies.
