Mediterranean Couscous Salad

Mediterranean Couscous Salad is a flawless option for a light lunch or dinner.  Sub quinoa for the couscous for a protein packed punch. 

I had a bunch of leftover couscous from an Indian recipe I recently made along with some leftover veggies. If you’re like me, you hate waste. It breaks my heart thinking about all the hungry people out there so I always try and repurpose my leftovers. I take them all out and think what style of dish could I make with this?
Asian? Indian? Italian? Could I even make a veggie burger?
After a quick minute it hit me. A mediterranean salad! 

I loved it. Fresh veggies, mint, and lemon are classics. You can’t go wrong.  

This was casual enough for a quick weekday option or would make a great potluck dish. 

What do you do with your leftovers? Are you not a fan or do you try and repurpose them too? Leave a comment in the comments below!
