Meatless Monday: Israeli Cous Cous Salad

Cous Cous salad with feta, pistachios, arugula

If you are looking for a fun side dish to bring to a potluck, I think you'll like my Israeli Cous Cous Salad. Quick shout out to my friend Lara for suggesting Israeli cous cous: I took it from there.

This salad is great not only for a potluck, but also for a picnic because it doesn't have any mayonnaise (I know... you are shocked that something I make doesn't have mayonnaise).

I brought this salad to my friend Jazmin's party with each ingredient packed into a separate container and mixed them all in a large bowl right before the party.
