Couscous Salad

This week on French Fridays with Dorie, we made couscous salad (page 136).  This was very reminiscent of another recipe I make called grilled lemon chicken with cilantro and almond couscous. Since we liked that recipe we were pretty sure we would like Dorie's.



This ramped up couscous salad was a hit with me and my husband.  My son does not like couscous. The addition of all the vegetables and other ingredients made this a wonderful recipe.  I paired it with lemon grilled chicken and it made a great meal.  I will definitely be making this one again.

These recipes are part of an international cooking group working our way through Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan.  You c an see what other members of this group thought here.

  2. Hi Diane,
    Love the ratio of the colorful vegetables and grain in that bowl! Must try it with grilled chicken the next time!

  3. I love a salad like this that's full of vegetables - yours looks so bright and colourful. I skipped the chicken, as I used quinoa in place of the couscous, but will have to try it in future.

  4. I am really kicking myself that I didn't make the chicken like Dorie suggested - as I am now seeing it on so many Dorista's site and it looks FAB. Great job. This was a lovely recipe, no ? I will be coming back to this one again in the future.

  5. Nice looking meal! I wish I'd had time to make the lemon chicken. I'll have to try that next time. It made a lot of salad, so it will be awhile before we finish it up.

  6. Looks fantastic, I paired mine with chicken also, but mine was a roasted chicken from Costco. Nothing like taking the easy way out.

  7. Looks lovely! Glad you enjoyed it! I paired mine with lemon marinated grilled chicken…but this salad just didn’t do it for me. Have a nice weekend!

  13. It was a huge success in our house also - though the leftovers may have overstayed their welcome a bit.
