Colorful Couscous Salad (No egg, dairy, nuts)
1 box of Isreali Couscous
1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
1-2 Stalks Celery, diced
1 Small Yellow Onion, diced
1/2 cup Edamame
Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder (or fresh minced garlic), to taste
1. Cook couscous according to package (you will first brown in a bit of olive oil for about five minutes, then slowly add boiling water until absorbed).
2. While the couscous is cooking, saute the onion and celery for a few minutes in a bit of olive oil, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder (or fresh garlic). Add red pepper and saute a few more minutes.
3. To serve cold, cool couscous and veggies first, then mix together, and season to taste if necessary. Add edamame and olive oil, toss, and serve.
This is one of those rare dishes that is loved by both kids and adults. I happen to prefer it cold as a salad, and serve it hot for the kids. Enjoy!
