Cous Cous is the national dish of Morocco and we love it in our house. We make it the traditional way a lot but I really like making cold salads from the plain cous cous… Here´s a recipe I made last night:
Cold Cous Cous Salad
2 cups cooked plain cous cous
1 cup kidney beans
1 tomatoe diced small
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
Make the cous cous and let it cool. Add all ingredients to a bowl. Add vinegar, oil, and salt to taste.
Of course you can vary this for what you have in your kitchen. Any kind of bean, add other veggies such as cucumber or charred red pepper. I love using lots of parsley in salads. If I ever find I am out of lettuce I mix together any veggies, legumes, rice or cous cous and 1-2 cups of parsley and/or cilantro.
