ABOUT Couscous Salad with Grilled Vegetables in Honey Vinaigrette Dressing RECIPE

Couscous originated in North Africa, consisting of tiny granules made from steamed semolina.These tiny white pearls are bland in flavor, and so they readily soak up the flavor from other ingredients and spices added to it. There were many versions available to it with the varying water content to soak couscous and the flavors differing according to the taste and preference.. One thing i could derive was couscous was made with mild flavors and spices keeping it subtle.From then on I made couscous quite a few time and then settled on this version below.. I like to keep it simple and serve with grilled vegetables on the side.A very healthy dish which is a rich source of protein and high in dietary fibre and minerals.Perfect for weight loss...
