Pearl Couscous Veggie Salad


On my trip home to Denmark, my talented sister-in-law Mette made this delicious couscous salad for me with baked potatoes to go along. YUM! I was in heaven! I have replicated it once before, after my trip earlier this month. Today, I wanted to celebrate 21 Celsius weather, so this dish seemed absolutely perfect!

First, I cooked up a cup of Bob’s Red Mill Tricolor Pearl Couscous aka Israeli Couscous. Seriously, this only takes 10 minutes to make! Easy peasy! Then I added a whole red bell pepper (sliced & diced), two carrots (finely sliced), and then some sun dried tomatoes. For dressing, I used Annie’s Lite Raspberry Vinaigrette.

  1. I’ve never made couscous…this sounds so easy I’m going to try it…I make Quinoa a lot so this will be a good change. I stopped eating rice because I’ve read that most of it has high levels of lead…Do you have an opinion about that? 🐞

  2. Hi Helene! Couscous is the easiest thing in the world to make! I’m all about easy, but healthy after a day of ten classes and being “on”! I’m not sure where you live, but the risk of lead comes from rice in Asia, not the United States! Personally, I only eat brown rice since white has basically no nutritional value – since it’s been “stripped” of all it’s goodies! Check out this article, I think it will put your mind at ease:

    Best, Nina

    • Thanks, I only eat brown rice too but haven’t bought it in months I will definitely read the article. Love your blog! 🐞
