Couscous Vegetable Salad

Dinner, Lunch, Vegan

Summers are the best time for salads because most vegetables are in season and at their freshest point.  My Couscous Vegetable Salad uses some great vegetables like cucumber, cherry tomatoes, green olives and fresh basil.  I added a few pepperoncini peppers and vegan feta cheese crumbles, which added an authentic Greek flavor to the salad.  This is a salad you can enjoy for lunch or for dinner.

I love to buy my fresh veggies from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.  Their selection is outstanding.  If you’d like to see some great kitchen essentials, check out the ones I use on my Shop Page.
