Pearl (Israeli) Couscous Salad

Pearl Couscous Salad

I like to use a large variety of salad recipes to use as a side dish or take to an event.  This salad recipe is easy and delicious too. 

It's nice and light tasting.  There is no mayonnaise in the ingredients which makes it easy to take to a backyard bbq, picnic or family event.

Pearl Couscous

Pearl Couscous

Pearl couscous is also known as Israeli couscous or Jerusalem couscous.

You can find it in your regular grocery story.  This photo is of the pearl couscous I buy. 

It is easy to make. 

Pearl couscous can be eaten hot or cold.  The couscous retain their shape and texture even when reheated without clumping together as much as pasta or rice. 

It tastes great!  Even the kids love it!

I cook regular couscous a lot and I've had pearl couscous once, and loved it. Haven't cooked it myself, though maybe I will now and try out your recipe. Thanks for sharing!
