Couscous Salad

I LOVE making salads! Especially when its a hearty dish, and includes all the food this one! I learned this from my friend Sarah, who altered the recipe from a cooking show.

Since its a salad, there is little heat involved, so your kitchen can stay nice and cool during these hot summer days. For a vegetarian or lighter version, skip the chicken.
Serves 2 people for a main meal and 4 people as a side dish.

-1 cup prepared couscous (boiled according to instructions on box)
-1/2 cup diced tomatoes
-1/2 cup diced cucumbers
-1 cup garbanzo beans
-1 cup cooked and cubed chicken (optional)
-1/2 cup diced marinated artichoke hearts
-1/3 cup diced green onions

-1/2 cup marinade from artichoke hearts
-1/4 cup white vinegar
-1/2 cup fresh minced mint
-salt and pepper to taste

-Toss all the ingredients together and season with salad dressing.
Stay tuned for a SUPER AMAZING salad recipe coming your way...
