I remember trying Israeli cous cous a long time ago and really not liking it: I can't remember why though.
What's Israeli cous cous? It's basically just little round pasta (also known as pearl cous cous because the pasta looks like mini pearls).
Well, I decided to give Israeli cous cous another try. Who knew it'd be so hard to find at the grocery store though? The only variety I could find was pre-packaged with spices (similar to regular cous cous and rice mixes).
This is really not a recipe: instead, it's just a combination of my favorite ingredients.
I cooked the Israeli cous cous in the same way I cook any other pasta, minus the pre-packaged flavoring mix. After rinsing, draining and cooling it, I added the following:
* chopped tomatoes
* chopped cucumbers
* chopped black olives
* lots of fresh dill
* canned corn, drained (of course you can also use fresh corn)
* finely chopped red onion
* lemon juice
* olive oil
* salt & pepper
Doesn't this salad just scream summer? You can also add feta, chicken or even good quality canned tuna. The possibilities are endless!
Note: if I don't get back to your comments, please don't be offended: I'm spending a week in Puerto Rico and will answer any of your questions when I get back on the 29th. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your friends and family.
