Follow our simple recipe for making Sweet Pepper Couscous Salad

You will need these ingredients to make Sweet Pepper Couscous Salad:

1 cup of cooked tri-colored couscous
1 cup of diced mixed sweet peppers (great for adding fun color to salad)
1/4 cup of Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup of fresh diced cilantro
Juices from 2 1/2 fresh limes

We used RiceSelect Tri-Color Couscous to make the salad, which is made with quality durum wheat, sundried tomato and spinach. If you don’t have Tri-Color Couscous, regular couscous will work.

I added diced mixed sweet peppers, cilantro and a light olive oil and lime juice dressing just before serving and it was fantastic! This can be made ahead of time and put in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve. It’s great for BBQ’s, potlucks and when doubled can feed large crowds quite easily!
