Mediterranean Couscous Salad

Summer eating is so fun to me. I live off of the grill and cold salads. I like to change up the flavors of what I’m eating, but in simple, delicious ways. Mediterranean Couscous Salad is one of those perfect cold but super tasty salads. I don’t even need the grill on the plate – I could eat this salad all alone for dinner!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it’s too hot to eat a heavy meal, that’s where Mediterranean Couscous Salad comes in. Not only can you serve this EASY at a picnic or BBQ, but you can save yourself a heavy meal by gobbling this up for dinner. It’s a total change up from your normal potato or pasta salad so that makes it super fun at the same time. Surprise your family and whip this up (in minutes) and serve it tonight!

Mediterranean CousCous Salad

If you’ve never tried couscous you have to try it. It’s a lovely little pasta (or grain? not sure but it tastes like pasta!). It absorbs flavor like any pasta so it’s totally perfect for any salad. I love it. And with a Greek Flair with the tzatziki sauce – It’s so good!

A quick note, this would be fantastic with some little cucumber pieces thrown in, I chose not to because I relied on the flavor of cucumber coming through in the tzatziki sauce. If you love cucumbers though be sure to throw some in.

1 more note…Yes I’m a food blogger, but I did not make my own tzatziki sauce. I know I know. But sometimes you just want to make something SO QUICK. We do have a fantastic recipe for tzatziki sauce so click here to make your own if you like!
