Israeli Couscous Mexican Salad

5 Flares 5 Flares ×




If you have noticed a theme, I love Mexican food. This recipe is very similar to the Mexican Quinoa Salad, but the grain gives a very different taste. I think when I was originally introduced to both of these salads, they were very different, but I took ideas from both and combined them. To be honest, if I could choose just one to eat, it would be this one! I think quinoa is better for you, but I love the way the Isreali couscous tastes in this mix.

    This sounds delicious and sounds like a great vegetarian entree. What is Israeli couscous? How is it different from standard couscous?

      I actually am not sure what the difference is between the two…all I know is that one is small and the other is bigger. I will go look into it! Thanks for asking!
