Weekday Lunches - 3 Simple Israeli Couscous Salads

September 7, 2018




            Sometimes we all need a little inspiration on what to pack for those work/school lunches. Making a HUGE salad at the beginning of the week is always a winner but, by day three you’re pretty much guaranteed to already be pretty bored with your food! Rather than end up losing motivation half way through the week, why not just make three different salads and alternate from one day to the next?!


            For each of the salads below, just start with the base recipe (see below) then add in the remaining ingredients, depending on what kind of dressing you will be adding in!


            For the dressing, you already know the routine, mix everything together in a bowl until well combined, pour it over your salad and mix everything to perfection.

2 ½ Cups. Israeli Couscous, Cooked (approx. 1 Cup dried)
