Cucumber, tomato, onion and couscous salad

I threw this together and it was really good so I plan on making it again.

I diced up a couple cucumbers, a couple tomatoes, and some sweet onion. Green onion or scallions would work too. Then I tossed it with some Italian dressing and let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours so it would make a nice juice and let the flavors combine.

I made a box of couscous and once it cooled I tossed it in with the cucumbers, tomatoes, and onion. You could add other stuff. Broccoli would be good.

Again, I let it set it the fridge for a little while, but you don't have to. It was pretty tasty.

Sounds really yummy! I like it with raisins in too and dried herbs!

Thank you for sharing this, TwylaDee. It sounds really tasty.

I have everything on hand and some time to spare, so I think I'll make this for dinner tonight. I don't have couscous, but the quinoa I do have should suffice.

That does sound good. I bought asparagus yesterday and I bet that would be good as well. When you make your couscous do you use soup broth or just water?
