Cous cous is a pre-cooked wheat derivative available only in selective stores. I have used the more readily available broken wheat in this multi-textured and healthy salad, which is a great alternative to calorie-laden snacks. A delicately flavoured mint dressing perks up this nutrient-rich assortment of vegetables and dalia.
