in the Kitchen: Pesto Caprese CousCous Salad
Taking every opportunity to grill this summer has taken the Hubs and I through endless sides. Grilled corn, really any veggi I can grill I will & have! So we wanted to try something new. Why not try a new twist on a pasta salad, except using israeli cous-cous in lieu of pasta. It turned out soooo good!
This salad was light, bright and full of flavor! Pesto plus elements of a caprese, and then pasta-like Israeli cous-cous. Yum YUM!
I loosely followed this recipe, we omitted peas, and I used a low-fat firmer skim mozzarella. Already imagining trying this again with feta, and olives for a mediterranean twist (maybe served alongside grilled lemon chicken).
Have you tried any new great sides this summer?
