A little over a week ago, we had a 70 degree, blue sky kind of day. It was great to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and what better way to do so then with an impromptu cook out. I wanted an easy and quick side dish to go with burgers on the grill. After a quick switch at the grocery store, (I was planning to make the ever popular, but time consuming stuffed mushrooms) I went with a light and summery couscous inspired dish. Couscous takes only 5 minutes to make (simplicity at its finest). I cut up cucumbers, tomatoes and scallions, threw it all in a bowl with Italian dressing to taste and my work was done.
This dish could only get better with fresh veggies from the garden or the farmers market. If your looking to make this for a main dish adding any meat or fish would complete this as a meal. What’s your 5 ingredient go-to recipe for entertaining on a whim?
