After all the Eid feasts, I feel salads are much needed to detox. I was away in Beirut for Eid and the food was amazing, not counting all the sweets and all the nights spent dancing and drinking!
Now back to work and Dubai, it is time to get back into the kitchen to create healthier feasts! I’ve always liked a cooked grain or vegetable with my salad, so this and my lentil salad are my two faves 🙂
- 3 cups of mixed greens
- 1 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1 cup sweet corn
- 3 chopped cucumbers
- 1 cup cooked whole wheat couscous
- Juice of 2 lemon
- 1 tsp of date syrup
- Olive Oil (optional)
- To cook the couscous: Bring 1 cup of water to boil, once boiled add to couscous in a bowl and cover with plate. This will steam the couscous, it should be ready within 4-6 minutes. Once done, fluff with a fork and add salt and pepper (optional)
- Add the couscous and all the rest of the ingredients to a bowl, done!
