Couscous is a traditional North African food, quite similar to semolina and broken wheat, which is cooked and combined with veggies and other ingredients to make hearty salads .


Here is a lip-smacking Couscous Salad, made with broken wheat and an interesting assortment of veggies including cucumber and broccoli. Mushrooms are added to impart a chewy dimension to this multi-textured salad, while tomatoes add juiciness and tang to it.


This nutri-dense salad is delicately flavoured with mint and lemon juice. There is no oily dressing, and the ingredients are rich in fibre, which makes this Healthy Couscous Salad a wonderful snack for diabetics .
