This is a quick an easy 10 Minute Salad. Just let the seasonings in the Near East Roasted Garlic and Olive Oil Couscous mix add all of the flavor. No other dressing is needed. I cheated by using canned beans and a boxed Couscous mix.
Fast, easy, high fiber, low fat and tastes good!! Perfect!! We brought this salad to a “pot-luck” dinner tonight and it was a hit!! Even my teenage daughter who usually says “yuk” to salads loved it.
