After a weekend of traveling, and a day of unpacking and catching up on chores, I was ready for a quick and tasty dinner. I chose TUSCAN-STYLE COUSCOUS SALAD, a recipe from the cookbook that comes highly recommended by fellow blogger Bridget.

This dish requires almost no cooking. Water is brought to a boil, and stirred into couscous that has been flavored with turmeric. Once the couscous has absorbed all the water, toasted pine nuts, white beans, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, and red onion are mixed in. The salad is then topped with a dressing made from lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.

This is a very fresh and tasty dish. As recommended, I enjoyed it with crostini spread with goat cheese and a glass of white wine. This will be a great summer dish, and the leftovers are great to pack for lunches on the go!!
