I don’t drink. I gave up smoking more than 2 years ago. I don’t eat pork, bacon or fried foods. The only dressing I’m using for my salads are few drops of olive oil or lemon juice. I eat my fair share of daily veggies and fruits.
About two hours ago I received a phone call. It was my doctor. She wanted to let me know my cholesterol is a little higher. I froze. I thought I was eating right. For few minutes I was asking myself where did I go wrong?. The only answer I could come up with is butter, dairy and sweets. I don’t think I ever told you how much I love cheese.
I was about to hit publish and share with you a recipe for a delicious grape tomatoes quiche. You know, loaded with heavy cream and cheese. Instead I decided to write a new post and share a salad I made for a party. It feeds up to 15 people, depending on the serving size.
This time I used a colorful couscous I found at my local Wegmans. You can use the regular type if you don’t find. You can also use pre-cooked bulgur (or bulgur #1)
Place 1 cup of couscous in a bowl. In a sauce pan bring to boil 2 cups or stock or water. Pour over the couscous and let it absorb the liquid (about 5-10 minutes)
While the couscous is cooking, gather some fresh veggies. I used 3 tomatoes, 2 small cucumbers, 2 carrots, 2 celery ribs, 1 onion and lots of mint and parsley.
Take a deep breath and start dicing them as small as you can.
When you’re done dicing, fluff the couscous with a fork and mix it with the veggies. Season to taste.
Depending on your preferences you can half and seed some belle peppers and fill them with the salad.
or just serve the salad in bowls
Just before serving sprinkle some lemon juice over it and enjoy!
Thank you all for vising and taking the time to leave a comment.Much appreciated.
Sending you lots of love,
