I discovered a Mediterranean Couscous Salad some time ago while searching for a healthy salad. It’s interesting how such a clean salad can taste so delicious! A healthy, super tasty, and a nutritious filled salad like this is a definite keeper recipe in my little notebook. I have a few couscous salad recipes but the vinaigrette to this salad is a must-try! Give this salad a try to really taste the melody of awesome flavors.
