k&a: couscous salad with lime dressing


Yesterday on the blog I was talking about skin care and I mentioned eating well being one factor in keeping your skin healthy looking. So, today I decided to share a recipe. It is my couscous salad with lime dressing that I just posted on kitchen & aroma. This salad has been my favourite this summer.

It all started with our London trip in June. We bought some snack in the Whole Foods Market on Kensington High Street to eat in the car on the way back home. For me I got this really good couscous salad that had chickpeas and a wonderful selection of finely chopped vegetables. It was delicious, especially the dressing, which, by the way, didn't contain lime. While eating it I got a few ideas for my own version of a similar salad and I have been experimenting with different beans and various dressings. This one got a green light from family members. The lime dressing contains spices like garam masala, cardamom and turmeric but of course you can use something else.

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful week!

    1. I don't believe I have ever said that I avoid wheat, I simply never use white wheat when baking as spelt flour seems to be better for my digestion.

  4. I like couscous, it is a very convenient meal that you can make in a lot of forms and types, I usually use parsley and tomatoes but I am open to any kind of suggestions :)

  5. Couscous is a wonder for me. Everybody says is very easy to make...I never seem to manage it!
    I will take a look at you recipe though, since I do like the taste & texture of couscous; well, when I eat it other places than my home ; )

    Love the photo by the way!
