Couscous Salad

Couscous, 1-2 10oz boxes of 5-min OR any amount/type you want
(I used two boxes of Original Near East, use whatever kind you want)
Cucumber, Chopped
Bell Pepper, Chopped
Carrot, Chopped
Tomato, Chopped
Spinach, chopped (I chiffonade mine)
Onion, chopped
Garlic, Minced
Teaspoon of fresh dill
Teaspoon parsley
Dressing (recipe follows)

2 tablespoons balsamic vinager
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt/pepper/garlic powder
(I also add a squeeze of lemon to mine)


Make the dressing:
Combine all ingredients in a blender/food processor or just mix by hand and set aside.
(depending on how much couscous you make you may need to double the recipe)

Prepare Couscous (according to whichever couscous you pick).
Add to it the dressing and the vegetables, parsley and dill.
The vegetable are whatever amount YOU want, I like a lot, some people like few.
Refrigerate for a few hours to overnight.
