To me simple recipes are the best, they turn tastier and almost always make me ask for seconds! I never tried couscous and to be honest I was a bit reluctant to do it this time too, because let’s be honest here, couscous looks pretty bland. But after the first bite I realized how wrong I was! This simple vegetable couscous salad is super delicious and so flavorful!

I think that adding a variety of roasted veggies makes the whole difference, turning otherwise plain couscous into a beautiful, filling and flavorful meal. A different way to serve veggies, this vegetable couscous salad is easy and quick to make and a healthier alternative to pasta or rice.
