Tomato, Basil and Couscous Salad
A delicious summer salad, this draws raves whenever I
serve it. The Balsamic vinegar gives this a
wonderful, tart flavor. Inspired by a recipe from Bon Appetit.
|| minced chives
|1-14.5 ounce can
tomatoes, well drained
||chopped fresh basil
||dried crushed red pepper
||Cherry tomatoes, halved
Bring broth to boil in medium saucepan. Add couscous. Remove from heat, cover
and let stand 5 minutes or until all the broth has been absorbed. Transfer to large
bowl and fluff with a fork until cooled.
Wisk the oil into the vinegar in a steady stream. Mix the vinaigrette and all
remining ingredients except cherry tomatoes into couscous. Season with salt and
pepper and allow to chill in the fridge. Mix well and garnish with cherry
tomatoes before serving.
This keeps well in the fridge for a day or two.
